Mirrors are not at all automatic.  A far cry from a "cache".

And also offline work.  That's closer but:
- You have to set it up manually (which is not that bad since it's only
  done once, but still: it should be setup automatically with a sensible
- It does not cache patches.
- It does not cache some other meta data (not sure which, but when I do
  `tla build-config ...tla-1.2' tla somehow needs to access the network
  and check some patches's sigs even when all the trees's revisions are
  in the revlib).
- It is not automatically flushed to prevent unbounded growth.
