Best quick cache solution for vanilla?

I've fixed OpenId plugin, and it required using some server-side storage for really short amount of time - just between 2 pages. What would be best solution for this?

Gdn::Cache() seems to be not working, Gdn::Session->SetAttribute() works only at runtime, Gdn::Session->SetPreference() works for registered users only (while this is at registration process).

$_SESSION is not being used in vanilla at all. Is it ok to start php session and use it?

    There is now $Session->Stash() for popping stored variables in and out of the session array. I'm not sure where it got added, but it's been in all the .18 betas.

    Maybe a bug? Needs to be fixed for new beta release or Release Candidate?

    Gdn::Cache() is meant for a hook for memcached. If you don't have it configured on your server then you won't get anything from Gdn::Cache().
