Although the impossibility to modify olcPcache may be viewed as a bug, I
have the impression that a broad class of modifications e.g. to
olcPcacheTemplate are likely to invalidate an existing cache.

The fix should also consider the opportunity of thrashing the whole cache,
unless a clever means to only address entries associated with the
olcPcacheTemplate involved in the modification is found.
