There is a 'planet' command-line tool that does these things.  It
sounds like you would be most interested in 'planet fetch' (which
downloads without installing) and 'planet fileinject' (which installs
from a local file).  Run 'planet' with no options to get a list of
commands, and 'planet <command> --help' for information on <command>.
