** CAPI3REF: Custom Page Cache API.
** EXPERIMENTAL
**
** The sqlite3_config(SQLITE_CONFIG_SET_PCACHE, ...) interface can
** register an alternative page cache implementation by passing in an 
** instance of the sqlite3_pcache_methods structure. The majority of the 
** heap memory used by sqlite is used by the page cache to cache data read 
** from, or ready to be written to, the database file. By implementing a 
** custom page cache using this API, an application can control more 
** precisely the amount of memory consumed by sqlite, the way in which 
** said memory is allocated and released, and the policies used to 
** determine exactly which parts of a database file are cached and for 
** how long.
**
** The contents of the structure are copied to an internal buffer by sqlite
** within the call to [sqlite3_config].
**
** The xInit() method is called once for each call to sqlite3_initialize()
** (usually only once during the lifetime of the process). It is passed
** a copy of the sqlite3_pcache_methods.pArg value. It can be used to set
** up global structures and mutexes required by the custom page cache 
** implementation. The xShutdown() method is called from within 
** sqlite3_shutdown(), if the application invokes this API. It can be used
** to clean up any outstanding resources before process shutdown, if required.
**
** The xCreate() method is used to construct a new cache instance. The
** first parameter, szPage, is the size in bytes of the pages that must
** be allocated by the cache. szPage will not be a power of two. The
** second argument, bPurgeable, is true if the cache being created will
** be used to cache database pages read from a file stored on disk, or
................................................................................
** false if it is used for an in-memory database. The cache implementation
** does not have to do anything special based on the value of bPurgeable,
** it is purely advisory. 
**
** The xCachesize() method may be called at any time by SQLite to set the
** suggested maximum cache-size (number of pages stored by) the cache
** instance passed as the first argument. This is the value configured using
** the SQLite "PRAGMA cache_size" command. As with the bPurgeable parameter,
** the implementation is not required to do anything special with this
** value, it is advisory only.
**
** The xPagecount() method should return the number of pages currently
** stored in the cache supplied as an argument.
** 
** The xFetch() method is used to fetch a page and return a pointer to it. 
................................................................................
** existing cache entries with page numbers (keys) greater than or equal
** to the value of the iLimit parameter passed to xTruncate(). If any
** of these pages are pinned, they are implicitly unpinned, meaning that
** they can be safely discarded.
**
** The xDestroy() method is used to delete a cache allocated by xCreate().
** All resources associated with the specified cache should be freed. After
** calling the xDestroy() method, SQLite considers the sqlite3_pcache*
** handle invalid, and will not use it with any other sqlite3_pcache_methods
** functions.
