While likely not used extensively by
"normal" people (of course few
"normal" people tend to participate
here), configuring your ccache cache
size is critical when you are building
a large number of different projects
to avoid constant cache churn.

While I am too lazy to look the details
up, the buildbot worker setup sets
the cache size to be something like
10G because those workers may be
building for master, fixes/31, fixes/30,
devel/xxxxx and you want to take
the most advantage of the cache.

And for those (such as myself)
that tend to build a lot of different
projects in mock, you often have
to change the cache size for your
mock instance(s) for the same

Of course, running on a m5dn.24xlarge
instance in AWS can mostly make
your build problems go away (to
potentially be replaced by the sticker
