Why not give them a batch file that 'ppm install's all the modules you might need?

The first call will take a while to update the packlists regardless of whether it downloads or not, and any call that needs to download and install something will take a while... But the rest of the calls for things already installed return quite quickly, so you can just include everything you use in the batch file and it won't be too slow.

C:\>ppm install opengl Downloading ActiveState Package Repository packlist...done Updating ActiveState Package Repository database...done Downloading packlist...not modified Downloading Bribes packlist...not modified No missing packages to install C:\>ppm install yaml::tiny Downloading YAML-Tiny-1.51...done Unpacking YAML-Tiny-1.51...done Generating HTML for YAML-Tiny-1.51...done Updating files in site area...done 2 files installed C:\>ppm install yaml::tiny No missing packages to install
