My home machine is dying a slow death and I don't feel like developing
on freeciv too much in my office :)

That said, I've submitted a couple of patches that have parts of this
patch in it.  I should be able to hammer out another per-city cache
patch pretty quickly (I'd do it right now if I were in my office).

The one hypothetical problem I can see: if someone copies the city and
sends in a fake city with the same ID but different other attributes.
But I can't think of anything better than city-ID to index by (indexing
by memory address has its own problems).

Using an array has the problem that our storage is linear in the maximum
ID rather than in the number of cities, so I'll switch to using a hash
table now that I know that one exists.

True -- I should be copying it rather than keeping a pointer.  I can't
think of any problem of copying the parameter, but please inform me if
it's just a lack of imagination on my part.
