I have updated the script to cache all routes. This means the 
registry mirror at dub.bytecraft.nl will also work when the 
registry at code.dlang.org is completely down, **if** your 
dependencies have been cached previously.

The cache works in the following manner:

1. if a cache entry exists for a given route and it is no longer 
than 5 minutes old: return that
2. if a cache entry is older than 5 minutes: fetch from upstream, 
cache it and return that
3. if a cache entry is older than 5 minutes and upstream is down: 
reset cache expiry and return from cache
4. if a cache entry doesn't exist: fetch from upstream, cache it 
and return that
5. if a cache entry doesn't exist and upstream is down: return 

On top of that there is a 5 second timeout on fetches from 

Essentially a cached entry is kept up-to-date (5 minute lag) 
whenever upstream is alive, otherwise stale data is returned if 

Use it like so:

`dub build --registry=https://dub.bytecraft.nl`
