You're right, insofar as the person who should have read that 
documentation was the author of the installer, and not you.  As a post- 
installation action, the installer should load plugins and thereby write 
all of the appropriate cache files.

You're correct in saying that end-users should not have to deal with 
this edge-case.  However, that doesn't mean that the right fix is to 
write the files somewhere else; the right fix is to have installers that 
finish installation.
