Would any work you do in this area make it easier to handle selected 
global packages? The hard point there seems to me to keep track of what 
is coming from where. When buildout has a firmer grip itself on where 
what dist is, doing advanced tricks with them might be easier.

Unrelated to your work as such, but as long as you're thinking about a 
global dist cache, throwing an extra possible usecase at you might help 
you design it ;-)
