[development] Should I submit a new module?

Yes, good idea. Devel is dangerous in the wrong hands. Clearing the cache is
harmless (but may impact performance for a bit). Of course you can do it
with phpmyadmin but that is also dangerous in unskilled hands.

Subject: [development] Should I submit a new module?

Hi!  I found a recent need to be able to force clear the caches, but didn't
want to install devel.module.  I created a small module that just provides a
menu item for clearing caches.  (The scenario is that I have a page which is
generated by the php filter; it wasn't being updated for anonymous users due
to caching.)

Is this something that other people would find useful?  I would probably
have the menu item be optional and use hook_form_alter to put a button on
the performance settings page.

If others are interested, I'll create a project on drupal.org and release
it, but I wasn't certain if something already did this, or if people felt it
just wasn't worth bothering with.
