Touche. I know that this "problem" was discussed a short while ago, but
I can't find the message thread. It does seem as though there should be
some configurable mechanism for updating, kind of like the local cache
management of (small shudder) Internet Explorer. Several interoperable
aspects might include:
1) update index.r and or files every time, once a day or week or never,
2) embed a checksum for files in index.r, if there is a mismatch with
the local file store, offer to reload file
