The problem is that 1.1.X uses a swapfile index number that is dependent
on the number of cache directories. If you add/remove a cache_dir then
all your objects needs to be renumbered.

Another problem with 1.1.X is that it assumes that the cache is evenly
distributed on all cache directories. It does not keep track of how much
of each directory that is used.

1.2 addresses both these problems.
