Unless, you don't care if the cache is out-dated because the cache is optional / the syntax checking is optional, and its only made available when you generate it manually. And considering how fast eclasses change, I doubt you'd need to regenerate it often. Though how much time it takes to parse and stuff really needs to be properly benched, its more that there is an intermediate state that can be inspected by human eyes instead of a lot of magic going on -- Kent perl -e  "print substr( \"edrgmaM  SPA NOcomil.ic\\@tfrken\", \$_ * 3, 3 ) for ( 9,8,0,7,1,6,5,4,3,2 );" http://kent-fredric.fox.geek.nz
