But a cacherev will not help you there more than having the revision in the
revlib: it only gives you one revision.  And you can re-create the cacherev
from the revlib revision if it turns out to be necessary.

In any case, you can always keep a mirror of the parent archive somewhere
"just in case".  It doesn't have to be easily available: just backed up
somewhere safe.
