CircleCI Ideas

Allow sharing cache between workflows

Instead of restricting the cache to jobs within a workflow allow the same cache to be shared between workflows

If users cache based off a lock file then there is no need to re-download dependencies each time. If users need to for some reason then they can use the CIRCLE_BUILD_NUM environment variable.

    Yeah this would drastically reduce build times for 90% of jobs but still give flexibility where needed
