[1.7.x] Increased memoization cache size for language codes.

There may be more than 100 (default maxsize) commonly seen xx-yy values
on some sites. The additional memory consumption isn't significant.

Also added a comment explaining why this cache must have a maxsize.

Backport of f356b6e from master.
