Maybe we can do this automagically.  We can keep a hash (e.g., md5,
sha) of the repository metadata file.  chicken-setup always downloads
the hash file (which is small) and compares with the local copy.  If
the remote and local hashes are different, chicken-setup fetches the
remote (most recent) repository metadata file and its hash.  If the
remote and the local hash are the same, chicken-setup uses the local
metadata file.

Best wishes,
