I did, doesn't seem to do much for bsd .a files. This does work though:

#include "Plugins/ObjectContainer/BSD-Archive/ObjectContainerBSDArchive.h"

class MyBSDStuff : private ObjectContainerBSDArchive {
   static void ClearCache() {
     Mutex::Locker locker(Archive::GetArchiveCacheMutex());
     Archive::Map &archive_map = Archive::GetArchiveCache();


which I know is a terrible hack, but I didn't see it anywhere else exposed.
