I think we should keep this open a bit longer.

Specifically, the current code assumes all files are equally hard to
cache. This is bogus.

foo.knit: not safe to cache
foo.kndx: not safe to cache
branch.conf: not safe to cache
3847868641027641243.pack: safe to cache
3847868641027641243.iix: safe to cache
branch-format: safe to cache
format: safe to cache
lock/*: not safe to cache.
