Add "force update" option to @GetProfileField / profile documents

Profile documents are a great way to store basic configurations or even user based configurations for an application.

The documents seem to be cached for better performance. This is also great.

But this is also sometimes an issue. When you make a change in such a document and you leave the document open after saving your changes, a @GetProfileField ( and also LS methods ) do not return the changed value. The cached value is returned instead.

Sometimes, you have to close the entire Notes client for the changes to take effect. 

I would like to see an additional / optional parameter in @GetProfileField to force an update of the cached values ( like the NOCACHE option in @dblookup )

    This would be great to see also in XPages equivalents, as the only approach otherwise is to retrieve the entire collection of Profiles, which isn't cached, and iterate through until you find the specific profile you need to be "fresh" -- I like the caching model but definitely, more control is needed to bypass cache without resorting to iterating...
