Thanks Doug! For starters, I'd be interested to hear any plans you have
for how to tackle caching, or any thoughts you have on the rough plan I
described before. If you're happy with the concepts, I'll have a go at
implementing it. I'll probably consider it experimental until there's a
hooks mechanism to trigger rebuilding the cache when packages are
installed or uninstalled.
