So I just committed WABulkReapingCache. It's intended a session cache
for GemStone/S. It's a wrapper around an RcDictionary. It doesn't do
any on access reaping, it only reaps in #reap which is supposed to be
called by a background process.
I still need to figure out how to plug it in and remove the mutex.
