About TypeLookup & caching.

Caching exists to alleviate obvious performance problems during runtime
and is possible because, once bootstrapped, the application model
doesn't change.

We could move the caching to some TypeLookup decorator that we would
only use at runtime, and use the non-caching implementation during

That could solve this use case, correct?
