Of course and it's still doable. As caches based on gencache have their own
specifics they're built on top of it. This mechanism provides a GENeric CACHE :)
If you think it is better to leave logon caching with its own mechanism, I am
still happy with that. I just thought I had written gencache with using it
this way on mind. I'll take a look once more at the code and talk to you.
