[OpenLayers-Users] limit cache buildup on client?

I noticed this when I was looking at mapfish, but ultimately it's
OpenLayers. As a session in an OL map progresses, cached images build
up in the browser. In a tiled map with many layers and fractionalzoom
on this can get up into the many hundreds quite fast.
I don't know if this adversely affects the browser performance
(probably depends on how the browser handles cached files). Is there
a way to limit the number of images OL caches? Is it worth worrying
