You're mixing up two completely different concepts here. Cacheing has
nothing to do with asynchronous calls; it's storing the result so that
you don't have to wait the *next* time you want the information.
Both could be useful, but only for certain applications, and they
should both be off by default in any general-purpose impelentation.
