The quirk in this case is that it's not a flat list of objects... it's a tree structure. Each object has a parent and may have children. The tree can only go 3 levels deep, but it makes it challenging to access it in a way that doesn't trigger cascading queries.

I think I may have found a simple way to achieve what I want with Rails.cache
