Yeah, I was afraid of that.

I was thinking about that too.

One annoying thing about extends-cache is that it uses long hashes for 
filenames. I wish it would try to replicate human-readable names, though 
I realize that would be hard to implement. The hashes just reduces their 
usefulness for human introspection, but perhaps that's all right - 
people aren't supposed to modify these files anyway. But if they're not 
useful to read, I'd rather see them hidden somewhere instead.
