Can Data/Cache be put on the SD card somehow?

I just got my first Android device last week (a Sony Xperia Active).
The phone is currently running on Android 2.3.4 (supposedly there will be an ice cream sandwich update in may still ..).

Now this phone has a rather small internal memory (due to it's size and the fact that it is an outdoor phone I suppose).
I am already getting close to having internal memory completely full even though I put all apps I can on SD card.

Unfortunately it seems that the G+ app puts it's data/cache on internal memory by default and I cannot find any way to change this.
Is there some workaround for this?

I am sure most people won'T be bothered by 20, or even 50MB internal memory used anymore with current devices, but for me - and probably others that have phones with smaller internal memory - this poses a serious problem and - despite me being a frequent G+ user - I might have to uninstall the app again (and I like the app).

So please if there is any way to do this I would greatly appreciate it. - If it is not possible yet can a feature request be submitted for this?
