Better admin control over page cache

Vote:
 
In EPiServer 4.62 the cache timeout is controlled via web.config, using EpnPageCacheTimeout. This takes a value in hours. However we are using SQL Server replication to copy content continually from a staging/edit server to a live server, and would like to use a cache timeout well under an hour to ensure updates appear quickly, without crippling performance. Can EpnPageCacheTimeout be changed to take a value in minutes? Also, it would be very useful to have a "clear cache now" function in admin. Both things can be achieved with the EPiServer.DataFactoryCache class, but it would be great if we didn't need to write code to do it.

The cached pages are "sliding", so pages that are accessed more often than the timeout will never be thrown out anyway.

But, since EPiServer CMS 5 this setting for cache timeout is a TimeSpan which means you have full control over it, from days to milliseconds. But it is still sliding.
