...that sounds useful, particularly if there's an easy one-shot way to
get that package archive up-to-date, and to potentially have multiple
instances of a package archive locally -- so that, eg., i could have a
bunch of the "stable" mirage repos, and a bunch of the "devel" or "rc"
repos or something.
