Directory needs better caching with per-plugin invalidation
Currently, the directory caches all API search results for up to an hour. A better approach would be to cache all results indefinitely, but invalidate stale cached data if it contains a plugin that's been updated since the data was cached. Here's a possible approach: * Maintain last-modified by PFS ID in memcache, updated whenever a plugin's metadata or any releases are modified. * Maintain last-modified for each cached API result. * When an API search results in a cache hit, iterate through all the PFS IDs included in the result. * If any of the PFS ID last-modified timestamps are newer than the overall cache hit timestamp, discard the cached result and perform a new lookup.
