Caching framework.

This package defines set of cache backends that all conform to a simple API.
In a nutshell, a cache is a set of values -- which can be any object that
may be pickled -- identified by string keys.  For the complete API, see
the abstract BaseCache class in django.core.cache.backends.base.

Client code should not access a cache backend directly; instead it should
either use the "cache" variable made available here, or it should use the
get_cache() function made available here. get_cache() takes a backend URI
(e.g. "memcached://") and returns an instance of a backend
cache class.

See docs/topics/cache.txt for information on the public API.

    including arbitrary options::
