{
   [[Efl Ui Factory that provides object caching.

     This factory handles caching of one type of object that must be an @Efl.Gfx.Entity with an @Efl.Ui.View interface defined.
     This factory will rely on its parent class @Efl.Ui.Widget_Factory for creating the subset of class that match @Efl.Ui.Widget
     interface.
     The factory will automatically empties the cache when the application goes into pause.

     Creating objects is costly and time consuming, keeping a few on hand for when you next will need them helps a lot.
     This is what this factory caching infrastructure provides. It will create the object from the class defined on it and
     set the parent and the model as needed for all created items. The View has to release the Item using the
     release function of the Factory interface for all of this to work properly.

     The cache might decide to flush itself when the application event pause is triggered.
