use the raw meta-data cache to save downloads

Description

At least for http, zypp shouldn't download a file which already is (unchanged) in its meta-data cache again. This will most probably need to make the media back-end aware of the raw cache. Also, this feature can be implemented keeping the rpm file caching in mind (FATE #302159).

This can be fixed if we use Fetcher on commit and set the right cache paths.
