assuming it anyway is the same package version and release, then it
makes no difference if the package is installed from the cache or
downloaded. If it's in the cache, it will not be downloaded again, but
get installed from cache.

However, since Jude first -Rs or -Rss the packages and does _not
reinstall_ the packages, there should be no old config in the way
after removing them
( https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman/Pacnew_and_Pacsave#.pacsave ),
excepted of configs in $HOME.

Just reinstalling packages is something else, even after deleting
a .pacnew file no new one gets installed, the edited config either way
stays untouched.
