Well, okay I guess that would work, but it is a complete waste of
time, effort, and bandwidth; it's also nothing like the simple
solution which I suggested:

So, not only are you wasting loads of bandwidth, by downloading all
over again, a bunch of packages which you already had cached locally,
until you wiped out the package cache (along with the rest of your
MinGW tree), you have to do it iteratively, to work around some quota
imposed by whatever mirror you are downloading from. The whole point
of using an integrated package manager, such as mingw-get, is that you
can maintain a consistent installation, while installing individual
packages, WITHOUT repeating the whole caboodle time and time again.
