However, users who add fonts on their own would definitely *not* know,
and programs that do it are not currently explicitly running fc-cache,
so there'd be a big installed base problem to deal with.

I think automated out-of-date cache detection and cache updating must
stay for $HOME. It's only system fonts that are problematic for me
(though even for $HOME we need to avoid mega-statting, as now, and we
*also* need to be robust against filesystems with coarse-granularity
timestamps. Both of these behaviours currently appear to be broken.)
