Bug 52343 - Invalidate navbar cache when JSON is edited

If you are creating the navigation bar in php; that means it gets cached for logged out users; which means that you would have to invalidate all constituent pages in a book every time the json changes

This can be done using

Title::makeTitle(1, 'foo')->purgeSquid()
