class CacheRegion(object):
    """A front end to a particular cache backend.
    :param name: Optional, a string name for the region.
     This isn't used internally
     but can be accessed via the ``.name`` parameter, helpful
     for configuring a region from a config file.
    :param function_key_generator:  Optional.  A 
     function that will produce a "cache key" given 
     a data creation function and arguments, when using
     the :meth:`.CacheRegion.cache_on_arguments` method.
     The structure of this function
     should be two levels: given the data creation function, 
     return a new function that generates the key based on 
     the given arguments.  Such as::

        def my_key_generator(namespace, fn):
            fname = fn.__name__
            def generate_key(*arg):
                return namespace + "_" + fname + "_".join(str(s) for s in arg)
            return generate_key

        region = make_region(
            function_key_generator = my_key_generator
     The ``namespace`` is that passed to 
     :meth:`.CacheRegion.cache_on_arguments`.  It's not consulted
     outside this function, so in fact can be of any form.
     For example, it can be passed as a tuple, used to specify 
     arguments to pluck from \**kw::
        def my_key_generator(namespace, fn):
            def generate_key(*arg, **kw):
                return ":".join(
                        [kw[k] for k in namespace] + 
                        [str(x) for x in arg]
     Where the decorator might be used as::
        @my_region.cache_on_arguments(namespace=('x', 'y'))
        def my_function(a, b, **kw):
            return my_data()

    :param key_mangler: Function which will be used on all incoming
     keys before passing to the backend.  Defaults to ``None``,
     in which case the key mangling function recommended by
     the cache backend will be used.    A typical mangler
     is the SHA1 mangler found at :func:`.sha1_mangle_key` 
     which coerces keys into a SHA1
     hash, so that the string length is fixed.  To
     disable all key mangling, set to ``False``.

            def generate_something(x, y):
                return somedatabase.query(x, y)
        The decorated function can then be called normally, where
        data will be pulled from the cache region unless a new
        value is needed::
            result = generate_something(5, 6)
        The function is also given an attribute ``invalidate``, which
        provides for invalidation of the value.  Pass to ``invalidate()``
        the same arguments you'd pass to the function itself to represent
        a particular value::
            generate_something.invalidate(5, 6)

        The default key generation will use the name
        of the function, the module name for the function,
        the arguments passed, as well as an optional "namespace"
        parameter in order to generate a cache key.
        Given a function ``one`` inside the module
            def one(a, b):
                return a + b

        Above, calling ``one(3, 4)`` will produce a
        cache key as follows::
            myapp.tools:one|foo|3, 4
        The key generator will ignore an initial argument
        of ``self`` or ``cls``, making the decorator suitable
        (with caveats) for use with instance or class methods.
        Given the example::
            class MyClass(object):
                def one(self, a, b):
                    return a + b

        The cache key above for ``MyClass().one(3, 4)`` will 
        again produce the same cache key of ``myapp.tools:one|foo|3, 4`` -
        the name ``self`` is skipped.
        The ``namespace`` parameter is optional, and is used
        normally to disambiguate two functions of the same
        name within the same module, as can occur when decorating
        instance or class methods as below::
            class MyClass(object):
                def somemethod(self, x, y):

            class MyOtherClass(object):
                def somemethod(self, x, y):
        Above, the ``namespace`` parameter disambiguates
        between ``somemethod`` on ``MyClass`` and ``MyOtherClass``.
        Python class declaration mechanics otherwise prevent
        the decorator from having awareness of the ``MyClass``
        and ``MyOtherClass`` names, as the function is received
        by the decorator before it becomes an instance method.

        The function key generation can be entirely replaced
        on a per-region basis using the ``function_key_generator``
        argument present on :func:`.make_region` and
        :class:`.CacheRegion`. If defaults to 

        :param namespace: optional string argument which will be
         established as part of the cache key.   This may be needed
         to disambiguate functions of the same name within the same
         source file, such as those
         associated with classes - note that the decorator itself 
         can't see the parent class on a function as the class is
         being declared.
        :param expiration_time: if not None, will override the normal
         expiration time.
