OK, I'll make it do that.

Ack! I guess trying to give dual character to "fetch" and "fetch-list"
(when called from a pkg directory or from the top) is too ambitious.
How if I just leave fetch and fetch-list to recurse in every
directory, and just add a top-level "fetch-list-no-recurse", which
would be the usual way to write a script to fetch all the files?
Thanks for your comments.
