Thanks much for the feedback.  Just a quick reply before I go to sleep:

Yup, known bug, I'll try to fix it tomorrow.

Actually there was some thought this might want to be configurable - 
whether to always save dependent versions in the same place as the 
bundle/whatever version or not.  For now they just get stored to the 
cache, but I think I will probably change the default to be what you 
evidently expect, that everything gets stored to its default repos.

Yup, I'll have it check for that.

Cause that was the quick and dirty way to do it :).

Both good ideas.

Excellent. :)
