Probably for 95% of the packages, it could be done. A simple comparison
of book versus repo, and use the (some entity or variable or whatever)
download location to fetch it up and sync.

But for the other 5%, the URL's change, or naming changes, or paths
change, or (so forth and so on).

But, yes, if you want to work on that as a project that would be fun,
please do. This Anduin repo thing has always been a headache, but
I'm grateful to Bruce that we have the server, as having it much
outweighs the headache of keeping up with the repo.

Thanks for offering to help out, Jeremy. :-)
