The only real world use-case I currently have for config.caches, is it being a offering a crude way to override configure settings when configure guesses things wrong (A real-world use case: Paths to tools when cross-building scripts)

My real world use-case is TeX live with a total of about 70 configure

considerable speed-up with prcatically no problems.

Thus I'd certainly object to a removal of the cache file.
