The fact that the cache needs manual cleaning is a bug, in my
opinion. It would be good to figure out whether it can be pruned at
every update, and whether there's maybe just a feature of DIB's
source repositories functionality we're missing turning on to make
that happen. Otherwise maybe we can prune unreachable refs and
nonexistent remote heads periodically via cron?

Yeah, while it'll do in the short term it strikes me as more of a
workaround than a proper solution.
