If you need "in memory" caching for the duration of one request, you
could / should use the TransientMemoryBackend which is designed to to
just that.

Or do you mean to transient cache internally when using permanent
backends (by thus somehow "stacking" the TransientMemoryBackend in between)?

I am not sure if this is in the scope of the Caching Framework, as it
would add complexity to a currently relatively simple API. My guess is
that this should be solved on the caller side, using the TransientCache
whenever it makes sense in the specific application context.

I am sure Extbase could also re-use internally some information in a
single call, so if you want to explore this area, feel free to do so.

Felix Oertel is currently working on the Extbase persistence, and has
already touched some areas that involve calculating the same stuff over
and over again. See this proposed improvement:


Feel free to review / comment on that code!
