When I have started with Tramp 2.1, 5 years ago, I did some profiling
with Tramp. IIRC, there are only some few functions (like
file-attributes), which are called frequently, and which profit from
caching more than other functions. Maybe we shall rerun this profiling
again, since we have started Tramp 2.2 :-)

I guess we could use caching just for these high-runner functions; for
the other ones it doesn't matter whether we have caching, or not.

Best regards, Michael.
