I some cases it is desirable to exclude certain variables from getting cached. The plugin already supports <varcache_exclude> tags to exclude a region, but with this it is not possible to exclude certain variables in an INCLUDE.

This enhancement allows one to prefix any variable with VARCACHE_EXCLUDE_ and it will be excluded from getting cached. For example, to exclude %WIKIUSERNAME% write %VARCACHE_EXCLUDE_WIKIUSERNAME%.

Watch out that you do escape all variables that depend on an escaped variable. For example, escape FORMFIELD if it encloses WIKIUSERNAME, like this: %VARCACHE_EXCLUDE_FORMFIELD{ "FirstName" topic="%VARCACHE_EXCLUDE_WIKIUSERNAME%" }%
