Yeah, you’re right. I forgot that CacheDir can take multiple

v2 of patch 1 changes `ProtectSystem=strict` to `ProtectSystem=full`
which removes the need to specify ReadWritePaths. It can be demoted
further to `ProtectSystem=yes` if people use /etc/… as one of the cache
directories, or removed entirely if /usr/… or /boot/… or /efi/… are
used cache paths. I guess /usr/local/… might be? /usr/local/ could be
added in as a ReadWritePaths if we want to support that while still
locking down /usr/ otherwise.

(Patch 2/2 still applies frictionlessly on top of patch 1 v2, so I
didn’t resend that.)
