Option to pre-download the media for 'Available' app deployments before users see the advertisement
A feature I would like to see is when you 'advertise' an application (i.e. make it 'Available' instead of 'Required') on Software Center, that there should be an option for pre-downloading the content before the users see the notification that it is available for install. This is useful in those environments where we have slower links. If the app media is large, then currently users have to wait for a long time after they click 'Install' to download and install it. If downloading is done before user knows about the availability then it is much more convenient and faster.

Alternately, this should be possible by creating a 2nd required deployment with a mandatory date very far into the future.
