cache3 is enormous because it allocates far more room for combinations
than it needs; dynamically allocating that room cut the space usage down
from over 50 Mb to under 7 on the server in a game with ~100 highly
developed cities.  Is that manageable?

I'm not confident the patch is as stable as alpha yet, but I'll play
around a bit.  Also, I want to check that it's actually faster.  The
cache3 hit rate is certainly up a lot just when loading the game, and I
expect it to be dramatically improved when you actually play.  It
remains to be seen if that translates to less time / call.
