Perhaps. Since neither such a cache nor even the commit comments are
strictly part of the git data, they probably shouldn't be included in
the sha1 hash of the commit object. However, I don't see a fundamental
reason why we couldn't store them in the same file but omit them from
the hash calculations. That also allows us to retrospectively edit
commit comments without completely changing the entire subsequent
