Comment #4 on issue 198 by Unnecessarily inefficient calculation of utf-8 encoded lengt

It makes every generated message class bigger, because now every String field must have a both String and a ByteString cache. Additionally it generates a bit more code, in order to store the cached ByteString while calling ByteSize, and to clear the cache after serialization. Thus, it increases both the .class and memory footprint somewhat.
