You get a runtime-configurable header-cache, e.g.
set header_cache_backend = kyotocabinet
Pietro's change started as a way to make the caching code more independent.
Reduce duplicated code, reduce the number of #ifdef's, etc.
This lead to a header-cache API and then runtime configuration.
Before this change, a distro would have to pick ONE backend that they
thought suitable for all their users. Now, they can compile-in several
backends, and let the user choose.
This feature also makes testing/comparing backends much easier.
