More an idea for v4 because shouldn’t break the v3 behavior:

What about a cache that it stored at a shared location with a hashed path of the plugin folder it was generated for?

So if the plugins are in /Applications/VLC.app/…/plugins, the cache would be in ~/Library/Caches/…/HASH.dat? and as soon as the VLC is updated and therefore the cache invalidated, it is re-created at the same position but would be ready by the instance only that created it?

Best regards,
