           Summary: Consider allowing CMs to write caches to $XDG_CACHE_HOME
           Product: Telepathy
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: telepathy-spec
        AssignedTo: telepathy at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: simon.mcvittie at collabora.co.uk

Gabble wastes a lot of network I/O on disco caps replies whenever we sign on,
and to work well, MSN CMs need to cache a bewildering variety of tokens.

Perhaps we should relax the "CMs shouldn't write to disk" constraint to allow
CMs to write to $XDG_CACHE_HOME (defaulting to ~/.cache), as long as they only
write data meeting the definition of "cache" (i.e. the user can delete random
files at any time and the CM will not be adversely affected, except by wasting
some network I/O).
