That's how it's done. It will still punish users who do e.g. only one
call in a given CU. The cache setup is not for free, and will start to
pay off only after several calls.
In theory, the cache itself need not be populated entirely at the
first call; it could do so incrementally as further queries come in.
In practice, the only big user of libdwfl is systemtap, and we're
happy to pay the price of even a less-than-fully-clever caching
