Hello Mike,

This will probably work fine. Perhaps a note on the formatting of the 
new argument is needed? From what I can tell it needs to always start 
with "-a".

I can't help but think that there might be a need for named caches at 
some point if this is introduced, but I will add that if I find a need 
for it.
