/**
 * The offline cache is meant to reliably store resources for
 * offline use.  The expected semantics are:
 *
 * a) Once populated, the cache will not evict an application resource
 *    unless explicitly asked.
 *
 * b) Resources no longer in use by the application should be evicted.
 *
 * c) If the cache fills up, new entries should be rejected rather
 *    than throwing out old ones.
 *
 * The offline cache uses domains to concretely represent an
 * application.  It maintains a list of resources to be pinned for
 * each domain.  This list is separate from actual cache
 * population - the caller is still responsible for placing items
 * in the cache, and ownership can be declared without a
 * corresponding entry.
 *
 * A key can optionally be associated with a specific URI within
 * the domain.
