 Well like a lot of things over the last few years they both use the
checksum of the data as the primary identifier. But they should be
designed quite different apart from that, Eg. CAShe is meant to be used
as a cache so you can delete things from it without consequence, on the
other side dist-git is meant to keep it's data "forever".
