    If you set the cache server to be local, you don't need to run the server. That's my gut feeling, which seems to be borne out by switching platforms after activating this setting. There's a stage in the asset import that goes, "Downloading from cache server". However, it still takes quite a while. I guess Unity only has one copy of the assets ready at any time: for the currently-selected platform. Makes sense but for those with the disk space it would be cool to be able to have assets ready for several platforms simultaneously.

    Come to that, it would be good to have more information in the asset import dialogue, which simply says "hold on" at the moment, and you've no idea what it's actually doing with the files it's showing below.
