I dont cache them - they are fetched anew on every query, which
makes it slow, since it also fetches them serially. But I wanted to
just prove the concept out and show something working before I did
anything else. You may notice it takes a LONG time to get results
in some cases (a few minutes sometimes!) - so you should be patient
when you try it out - go grab a cup of coffee and talk by the water
cooler for a while and then come back. :)
