Unfortuantely , this is actually still wrong for languages other than
C++, because we don't have the same guarantees about uniqueness in the name.

I was actually in the process of readying patches that add the same
type of name based caching (based on mangled name) to partial and
normal symbol reading, which gives us an amazing win for C++.

These patches also moved all of the name caching into "if (cu_language
== language_cplus)" blocks, doing what we used to do in the old case
(IE no caching).

Rather than let this stay broken until i finish cleaning up those
patches, here is a patch that moves the type caching so it only
happens for C++ CU's.

Unless other languages make the same guarantees, we can't do the same
optimization.

Diff is making it into more than it is, because moving it into the
cu_language == language_cplus block, changes the indentation of all
the code under it.

I have added the same type of code kevin has to the patches i am
readying.
