Do you mean I should always first do :

Metacello new
   cacheDirectory: '...';
   fetch: 'ALL'.

And THEN only a load: 'ALL'?

I was under the impression doing just a load would fetch, thus populate 
the cache and then load; and on subsequent loads of the same thing would 
hit the cache. And indeed if I clean the cache out, and then just do a 
load I see that happening.
