Then that means revalidatePath() is buggy or you did it incorrectly

There is so little information on the web regarding how cache() works. So does cache only de-duplicate functions per path? I have a lot of API calls through a library that could be deduplicated on an authenticated page (so it renders dynamically depending on the logged in user), but the data could be refreshed updated externally. My questions are:

- I created a function that deduplicates based on some key (e.g. id: 1) as the parameter, is this deduplicated between requests for this data from different users?
- If the function is also used in other paths, when calling revalidate, does it revalidate all the cache of the function for all routes that depend on it?
