There should be a way to selectively clear system caches.

This would speed up development tremendously, e.g. if one needs to clear the database query cache but doesn't care about any of the other caches.

A possible solution would be either a dialog with checkboxes or a submenu with a list of caches.

We are actually on the way of unifying this handling to make it even less options, as it is confusing to 90% of the people anyways at any time. I suggest to incorporate this functionality in an extension and put it in TER (as people do this via the language clearing) or disable the caches in development configuration e.g. doable in the AdditionalConfiguration.php.

If you have any further questions on the topic, feel free to contact me.
