You are not wrong at all, but I actually mean less installing files into
CACHEDIR but rather creating the subdirectory structure there, as it is
expected by that plugin (sometimes it involves the plugin name,
sometimes it's more generic, like for example several plugins sharing
so-called epg-images which are fetched by some script and can be used
for displaying by different plugins, so they would rather use a
directory name not necessarily bound to some plugin name...). But then,
again, I can agree it's arguable if that's not better a runtime option
anyway...

Lucian
