I considered applying it tonight, but it raised some more questions on IRC:

  [21:26] <Heffalump> it effectively throws away the existing cache, right?
  [21:26] * Heffalump is a bit dubious about that
  [21:27] <kowey> dubious about that being a good idea?
  [21:31] <tux_rocker> would restructuring the cache be much faster than just    
                       rebuilding it?
  [21:32] <idnar> doesn't throwing the cache away potentially lose data?

I think Heffalump was really dubious about throwing away the existing cache 
being a good idea.

Additionally, the patch introduces two compiler warnings:
