The file caches information about plugins previously found, so that
information is available without loading and inspecting all .so plugin
files at every gst_init(). It is usually (re-)generated from within
gst_init() if necessary, and will not be touched by any plugin
installation/deinstallation (even less so since the cache is per-user).
