A very good point! Perhaps we should note that somewhere? I'm not sure
where though, unless we just mention it in the docs for the relevant
modules..

Going the other way (using a smaller, or no, cache), perhaps in
addition to the new hit/miss attributes, the cache decorators should
expose the original function to allow the cache to be bypassed?
