Maybe we should not have a cache at all by default, but provide an API
like dbus_message_suggest_cache (message) so that for example
applications which frequently create messages of the same size can

Also, someone should add __attribute__((destructor)) or whatever it is
to dbus_message_cache_shutdown so it doesn't show up in valgrind :)
