It's irritating to wait for the package list to be downloaded each time I install a package. Meanwhile, apparently wbond's bandwidth bill is skyrocketing...
You can change the PC cache_length setting to something greater than 300 to cache the package list longer than 5 minutes, however it will not persist restarting Sublime Text. Currently there is no way to clear the cache other than to restart ST.
The new version of PC also supports HTTP compression, which should help improve the download speed.
