Thanks for the patch, but could you explain why you think the current
behavior is inconsistent?  The reason it downloads archive-contents is
that the local copy might be out of date.  Before changing
archive-contents, it should be necessary to make sure you're working on
the most recent copy.

By the way, in the future, please post context diffs ("diff -c", or use
the diff utilities built into Emacs).  I find it difficult to read the
diff you sent.  Thanks.
