As I understand, helpers are singletons in Magento. I was wondering what the life span of the singleton is in Magento. Is only 1 instantiated for the life of the app (web server process start to finish) or is it per request? Or is it something else?
I have a helper that memoizes some data, and I was wondering how long it would hold on to it. I figured it would be for the life span of the helper.
