It would be nice if pkg would cache its downloaded files somewhere.

This would speed up downloads for users on slow internet connections.

And as a minor GUI improvement, it would get rid of the temporary files flying
in and out of the "Current Directory" display when you do a `pkg -forge`

Somewhere under $XDG_CACHE_HOME, like `$XDG_CACHE_HOME/octave/pkg/downloads`
would be an appropriate place on Unix. Somewhere under %LOCALAPPDATA% on

Low priority.
