I have several sysfolders where i wanted to clear the page cache automatically for the parent page of the sysfolder if i edited a record within the sysfolder.

In the docs i found the option "TCEMAIN.clearCache_pageGrandParent" which almost did what i want. Unfortunately it only works if a page was edited, but not if a record was edited. So i extended the clear_cache() function to also work with page records (see attached diff).

I took the same name that was used for the pages. Wasn't sure if an separate option would be better.
