No I actually store ACLs as sub nodes. I have registered a change  
listener on the node types for the ACLs. The only thing missing from  
my current implementation is an actual AccesManager; it's currently  
being done by a legacy component from our old repository code.

It's technically possible to let your access manager have its own  
special session open to retrieve nodes on demand though; an ACL cache  
is not the only way to implement this.
