As a complement to disconnected operation, I would like a command to
fill the cache with the contents of an archive. Typically, one would
fill the cache before going offline or at the beginning of a day of
work, when there might be a lot of new stuff.

That would effectively make it a local-mirror-killer.

Great stuff. I hope it'll make it into a release soon.
