when importing packages from pypi I often need to look at the source. Either for checking the license, getting a better description, find out how tests are run or which build system to use.

For this I'd appreciate an option to keep the downloaded archive (or even better keep the unpacked archive) for easy access. This option could be called `-K, --keep-downloads=DESTDIR`, where DESTDIR is the destination directory where to download (or unpack) the archive.

Maybe this option should be available for all `imports` as it may be useful there, too.

Schönen Gruß
