apk index to reuse existing index and only re-index things that changed
It can take some time to generate the index if there are many packages.
Would be nice if apk index (with —update option?) could find files that have different size, are newer, or missing from index and only re-index those.

index: reuse existing index (fixes #25) replace the old 'delete' option, with 'index'. the idea is that one can provide existing index files to take cached meta-data of the package from (assumes package has not been modified if index is newer, and package size has not changed). this way one always gives the list of .apk files to include in the new index, and the old index is used only as "cache".
