> InstallMgr is nice and fast at refreshing now :-)

Thanks, I'd meant to make have 1 download for the entire remote config,
but hadn't gotten around to it until recently.

This would require refreshing from all remote sites every run of
InstallMgr.  I don't think saving is too much overhead.  Maybe we could
save the mods.d.tar.gz file and unzip each time.  That would keep thinks
on the disk a little cleaner, but it would be harder for us to get SWMgr
to use this, as it expects this directory heirarchy on the disk.  Thanks
for the suggestion.
