You have a couple of options in v2.1.4, but nothing that would help on 
this situation (honestly, if an object is only getting 2 hits ever, it 
probably doesn't deserve to be promoted to RAM cache anyways :). You can 
see some comments in the new records.config about the options you have 
(the default is a new cache eviction policy, which in most cases ought 
to be desirable to use).

No, those features never worked with either v2.0 or v2.1, which is why 
they are now cleaned out of the configurations and code properly. As for 
filter.config, we really need to come up with a replacement for it. I'm 
working on an experiment that I need to benchmark a bit more, but I'm 
hoping it might be a viable alternative to filter.config.
