[webkit-dev] Tweaking cache size for embedded browser

webkit currently reserves 8Mb of cache space (refer: Cache.cpp). This seems
too high for an embedded browser that should work with as less as 10Mb of
RAM. Other than the performance/reload of resource impact are there any side
effects by reducing this or totally disabling it. one feature that
inherently relies on cache is the navigation history, however in our tests
we see that there is no impact other than the reload (e.g. form data is
preserved in navigation).
we think that a small cache ~500k is more appropriate to help for content
thats repeated in the same page being refetched.
appreciate any inputs on this.
