Do you actually use repackaged packages? For what purpose?

There are solutions here as well, depending on what is desired.

One can view side-effects like JIT'ed cached files as
either disposable and easily regenerated (in which case
the content should not be repackaged) or you can view
the JIT'ed cached files as stageful and persistent
(in which case repackaging should include the content).

All depends on POV and "expectations".

And since its highly likely that noone can state
the desired POV precisely, then
	Have it your own way!
as an engineering solution would need to be attempted.

The two obvious resolutions to cached files are
	Include them in repackaging.
	Don't include in repackaging.
and that's essentially an if statement somewhere.
