Indeed. And I had the advantage of being able to start with an already-implemented one.

When [Fai] encounters an unregistered archive name, it automatically looks it up.

Yes, this is handy, but personally I like to register archives
explicitly, this avoids unexpected problems.

The default is to prompt you, and you can also configure Fai to always do it, or to never do it.

The registry functionality is available using Arch::Registry module that
is part of arch-perl. It has a nice API for any kinds of archive/version
regexp searches, and it has a support for internal web cache. The actual
"axp registry" subcommands are just several lines.

The way it should be.  I guess I should add a registry cache too.
