    `preferred-versions` are left out for now.
    It shouldn't be difficult to add, but needs work nevertheless.
    
    We also allow relative paths, which kind of work,
    if you are careful.
    
    In addtition
    - change the index cache to use `Distribution.Utils.Structured`,
      making Binary instances generically derived.
    - separate Distribution.Client.HashValue into own module.
      This allows to use HashValue for hashing the part of localRepoPath
      (breaks module dependency cycle).
    
    Almost as a feature generated 01-index.cache is never updated.
    If you change the contents of the directory, you have to purge
    01-index.cache file yourself.
