I think this is development related enough so here goes:

Create a conditional menu item inside of if(!$may_cache) that tests the 
node->type against you desired nodes. This will prevent the LMT from 
always showing up. If you want to get fancy let the user select the 
allowable node types via a settings page and pull the data via 
variable_get(). This information applies to Drupal-5 but may be modified 
to apply to drupal 6. good luck.
