And one more I thought of while thinking about this more. paccache
only keeps the _newest_ package it finds. Do we really want to assume
that the user is adding the very newest package in the directory and
have paccache blat the package they are trying to add?

It's probably reasonable in 99.9% of cases, but there's that corner
case where unexpected behaviour will result.
