Agree - this was actually a third possibility I had in my mind but
forgot to write :-). It could be something like

The only problem is that you have to specify these during construction
(we create the cache directory in the path with sqlite database in it
when it doesn't exist yet). But apart from _new_full() we can have
_new() with some sane default values (100MB database [or rather 60day
database now], .cache/champlain as the cache directory and permanent

I used astyle --style=gnu, but it doesn't make the spaces. I also
looked at indent, but the gnu style is a bit different as well. Do you
use some pretty printer (and which options) or do everything manually
(if not, I think it would be easier to start using some pretty printer
instead of checking the sources manually).

OK, the hardest part about coding is inventing the function and
variable names :-)

Ah, great, this is what I have been waiting for - instead of modifying
my patch to fit the existing work, people start modifying their
patches to fit my work :-).
