Actually it needs to GET the checksum file too, and check the archive is
not signed if not checksum file was available. So that's _at least_ two
GET. Throw in the signature checking by gpg, which probably accounts for
a significant part of the observed running time of cat-archive-log.

But I agree with you. The current behaviour is quite bad. The question
is how easy to optimise out are the unneeded GETs. I'll let the people
who actually know the code answer that one.
