This seems counter to how Ivy wants to be used though.  I think if there are
issues with the cache needing cleaning all the time, that should be fixed. 
The cache's responsibility afaict is exactly to prevent unnecessary
downloads across the wire.  Basically, I think what you are asking for is
probably not needed assuming the cache is working correctly.
