cache.has_key() doesn't do the same thing as "key in cache"

In [source:django/trunk/django/core/cache/backends/base.py django.core.cache.backends.base.BaseCache], has_key() is defined as a method, while __contains__ is simply an alias for it. Individual backends override has_key() to be more efficient, but __contains__ is left alone, so it's still an alias for the base function, which unfortunately means that the two end up with different implementations. This is generally fine, but shows itself when None is stored in the cache, which is a potentially useful situation.
>>> from django.core.cache import cache >>> cache.set('test', None) >>> cache.has_key('test') True >>> 'test' in cache False
