It is costly, but actually we currently don't cache.

we cache decrypted and decoded keys. we don't cache signature checks or trust evaluations. these choices were based on profiling, not a particularly detailed analysis of security tradeoffs, and the profile distribution might have changed since then anyways. it's fair to revisit this stuff.

probably it'd be good to hang a general purpose cache off app_state -- just for comprehensibility, if someone is reading the code -- rather than having these little static caches all over the program.
