I'm wondering about crating a persistant alterable DataList for use on a page in SS3. On my page I have a $has_many images, but I use them in differnt ways in the template (gallery rotator as well as a thoughout the body of the page). Currently I cache all the images in DataObjectSets, and have various other caches built from the main cache I modify as images are used. That way it allows me to have a pool of images for various template sections pull from without worrying about reqpeating images.

Is there a more effecient way to handle this in SS3?
