Yes, that's almost certainly the case.

} keeping the data in a variable may not be a good idea.

Some sort of cross-session synchronization would be needed to do this in
a foolproof way.  Hmm, another thing Sebastian was working on recently.

Here's the original message that started all of this:


Followed by several messages in 2000 which unfortunately aren't all
linked in the same archive thread but all of which have "caching" in
the subject.

I don't think we've been consistent about using *this* caching mechanism
for doing the intended sort of caching across all completions.  Various
completions put stuff directly into their own global variables, IIRC.
