For people who browse via Files/Folders rather than by using the ID3 tag based Database browser, this default would cost them memory usage and battery life would it not? I personally never use the Database browser.

Similarly, those who do always use the Database browser would not want dircache=on by default.

Currently, both of these options are off by default, which I think is probably the right way to do it unless it can be shown that the majority of users prefer one browsing mode over the other.
