imho, sane people should use a caching proxy (squid) or local mirror if
they build images often and want to save bandwith.
imho, it's not the task of live-helper to support each and every
combination. if a user wants to use an already existing cache, he should
configure it himself in live-helpers config/* (which, agreed, can be
improved to make it more easy to achieve this).
