cached_models

Hi all,
Yesterday I released a new Rails plugin: cached_models.
It allows to transparently use the internal Rails cache mechanism in
your models, avoiding to write code for expiring policies.

Example

class Project < ActiveRecord::Base
  has_many :developers, :cached => true
end

class Developer < ActiveRecord::Base
  belongs_to :project, :cached => true
end

# Automatic cache, all the following calls will be served by the cache.
project.developers

developer = project.developers.first
developer.update_attributes :first_name => 'Luca'
# Database update and cache expiring for project.

project2.developers << developer
# Database update and cache expiring for project and project2

This is a 0.0.1 release, it actually support only the has_many relation.
BTW I'd really like to receive a lot of feedbacks and comments.
