Having the local cache depend on the config files would mean that we'd
have to check timestamps on all of the config files to decide whether to
rescan the system for new fonts. That seems bad, but the alternative of
just gettin the wrong answer randomly seems *far* worse.

I realize the -1 cache files were broken in this regard...
