It does now (or it will soon; I've just spotted disc_cache_age, which
probably needs a field as well).

Apologies if I'm missing something, but does disc_cache_size really want to
be a signed int? It goes negative before you get to a 2GB cache (on RISC OS,
at least), which seems a little close to the 1GB default.

I don't know if this upsets the underlying cache, but I've limited the
RISC OS GUI to 2047MB for now.
