Message cache size

The current DBus message cache is 5 messages, up to 1 megabyte each.
Isn't this a little large?  My application will happily create 200K
messages and in low-memory situations (say embedded or handheld systems)
a message this big should be freed as soon as possible.  As the majority
of messages will be no more than a kilobyte, should the maximum message
size be set to a few tens of kilobytes instead?
