Ability to leverage cache key generation for cache templatetag

Its currently not possible to leverage the code that generates a cache key in templatetag cache as its embedded inside django.templatetags.cache.CacheNode.render.

It would be useful to be able to generate these cache keys if you need to programatically delete them and it appears there are a number of gist's and other solutions floating around, but none of them are done in a DRY nature.

I propose that a method get_cache_key be part of the django.templatetags.cache module.
