Yeah I thought about that.  I wanted the security of the user's home directory rather than
somewhere public where the bootstrap jars can be replaced.  But anywhere is good for me -
did you have some reasons of your own for putting it into java.io.tmpdir?

Yes I have not gotten there yet.  I'm taking a step back to look over my path in the past
couple of days.  It feels ok.  I hope to have a staged bootstrapping mechanism functional
soon but I want to do it right.

Yes that's good because after all we're caching repo files on local disk there it really does
not serve as a respo in the sense that an ibiblio does for example.  +1
