Some delay is noticeable when doing multiple queries over a short time. Usually
harmless but I think control over this may improve user experience. Another
config file could be added to the top level of the cache to control how long to
wait until querying the server again for these files. If we are worried about
missing server updates then a default of 0 may be appropriate.
