Module#find_const can't handle constants being reloaded

Reported by Carl Lerche | July 13th, 2008 @ 03:19 PM

Module#find_const will cache the constant the first time it is found. However, it is not able to handle the situation where the constant is removed then reloaded. The old constant is returned when #find_const is called again.

The consensus is that this is premature optimization and constant caching will be removed for now. In my opinion, any optimization should not be implemented in find_const but in the code that invokes it.
