To be clear, did you mean it might not be worth it because of the size
it takes on the user's drive or because the increase in size might slow
down the lookup?

For the former, currently my cache is 3.5 MiB big so I think it's safe
to go ahead and try if we get faster lookups with embedded synopses.
