Let me take a few steps back and first look at the functionality only.
We have:

* a local directory holding libraries. (both)

* remote site that may hold libraries not yet installed on our system
  and a mechanism to get the files from the remote site to our system.
  (both)

* information about a specific layout of directories and files both
  locally and remotely - that's what I understand the term repository
  to mean in this context.  (both, but optional with getlibraries and
  central part of the logic in dependencies).

* can create filesets or path from the libaries in the local file
  system.  (both, but optional with getlibraries and central part of
  the logic in dependencies).

* dependencies relies on a single local cache, getlibraries expects
  all builds that want to share the cache to collaborate.

* dependencies relies on filenames, getlibraries uses timestamps in
  addition (or maybe other mechanisms) to determine whether something
  already is in the local cache.

Am I missing a crucial piece of functionality for either of both?  Am
I misrepresenting anything?

Stefan
