Bug#662081: Webkit icon cache stored in $XDG_DATA_HOME (~/.local/share); should use $XDG_CACHE_DIR (~/.cache)

Package: libwebkitgtk-3.0-0
Version: 1.6.3-1
Severity: normal

Webkit stores its icon cache in $XDG_DATA_HOME/webkit/icondatabase/
(~/.local/share/webkit/icondatabase/ by default).  This specifically has
the semantics of a cache: webkit will load the icons from the web if not
found, and automatically delete old icons after a while (4 days).  Thus,
it should go in $XDG_CACHE_DIR/webkit/icondatabase/ (default
~/.cache/webkit/icondatabase/) instead.  This move would make it easier
to exclude from backups, remove when cleaning up, and ignore via
..gitignore or similar.
