Andrey and you have convinced me that the cache should not be stored in
the individual modules. However, I think storing the cache in the
superproject is better than storing it in a separate web service. As
long as all superproject maintainers (which if I'm right is a small
number of people) install the commit hook, version mismatches should
not occur.

It could, but then we would have two problems.
