Do we have a tool to fetch all the distfiles for selected packages?

If not, the good news is that we soon have one. I have cleaned up
my script I've use a long time and I'm ready to import it
into pkgsrc/pkgtools/distfetch...

Why this script? I have currently a slow modem link and I'm burning
all distfiles on a CD. Just imagine downloading KDE3 on 56k modem
