A cheap way to approximate something like that is to keep a `hit' flag
indicating whether this cache entry has ever been re-used.  Upon GC remove
all entries for which `hit' is false and reset all `hit' flags to false.

I.e. only those entries that have been reused since the last GC survive.

But of course a larger cache means slower lookup.
