Yes, something like this would be nice to have.  Note that the cache object 
already has some basic flushing capabilities:

__IP.outputcache.flush??

which would be good to reuse/extend/cleanup.

In the meantime, the OP can use at least

__IP.outputcache.flush()

for a full flush of the output cache (if not a line-targetted one).

Cheers,
