- option to cache each and every archive.

Oh, but you don't usually want to cache local archives. Maybe you'd specify "uncached:" for local archives, and otherwise, they'd be cached.

Um, local archives usually have a filename instead of a pseudo-URL; can't you
just notice that?

I'm just thinking on my feet here, but some apparently-local paths aren't actually local. FUSE and LUFS, maybe even NFS or SMB over thin pipes. You'd want those cached, even though they look local.

I suppose you could use cached: only for local filesystems you wanted to cache, but I doubt the uncached: would be a frequent problem; most people will have far more remote archives than local ones.
