You can use smart to get this effect.

YOU in SL 10.1 has the same option in the UI, too (there is a checkbox "remove patches" which is unchecked by default), but it's a stub (i.e., it is not effective). A bug IMHO (the option should not be shown if it's not effective), no idea if that's already known. It is, most probably.

You can use smart, but it does not save packages by default. You have to enable it explicitly:

smart config --set remove-packages=false

More info:

Please note that this will cause smart to store all packages locally, even those that you might already have on your physical media.
