Yes.

Good point.  It's still an improvement over no mlocate database, though.

This might inflate the local storage requirements a lot, though.  In the
most efficient case (system-global cache that is updated on each access)
it also expands the part of locate that must run with elevated privileges.

Given that this mlocate feature certainly won't be ready in time for
FC7, we have enough time to experiment with caching after some practical
experience is collected.
