This isn't really an architectural decision -- currently the way we
flush caches is someone posts a "OMG, I just did something dumb,
please can everyone flush their cache for $foo" on some set of mailing
lists... and then we all wander around asking how / why we should
trust that mail, some set of people actually flush, some don't read
them mail till 4 days later, some bemoan the fact that we still
haven't solved this problem, etc.
I was saying is that we don't really need to reach *every* recursive,
whatever we do manage to do will be better than the current position.
Sure, a fully awesome, all shining, all dancing cache flush solution
that can securely flush all caches everywhere would be best, but until
this comes along, something, anything really, is better than posting

I don't think the execution is relevant when it was obviously a bad
idea in the first place.
This is like putting rabid weasels in your pants, and later expressing
regret at having chosen those particular rabid weasels and that pair
