	And the system (if it ever exists) should allow user 
specification of a 'local' repository, so if you have a fileserver on 
the LAN, it's checked for the appropriate files first. I keep patches 
from sunsolve on something like this, and it's a real timesaver, but 
maintaining it is a PITA. Should be built into any forward-thinking 
network build system.
