While this might happen to work, it's not really a very good solution;
the technique is very oblique (which would make it hard to maintain),
and it'll produce a lot of unnecessary writes to the database.

If MediaWiki were some proprietary monster application which you
couldn't change, you might have to do it like that, but it's not.
Instead, you should try adding a "don't cache this page" flag to the
parser, which an extension could trigger.
