#' A caching wrapper around load2.
#'
#' This closure returns a wrapper around \code{\link{load2}} which per
#' default caches loaded objects and returns the cached version
#' in subsequent calls.
#'
#' @param use.cache [\code{logical(1)}]\cr
#'  Enable the cache?
#'  Default is \code{TRUE}.
#' @return [\code{function()}] with argument \code{slot}
#'  (name of the slot to cache the object in, default is \dQuote{default}).
#'  All other arguments are passed down to \code{\link{load2}}.
#' @export
