That's the clincher for me.  I currently run the texturecache script once a week or so for each of my kodi clients to update the thumbs.  Having the files locally will really help the performance of clients we don't use often enough that take a while to build the thumbs.  Running the script for multiple profiles is a pain as well as most of the time, the script fails to change the profile automatically and I have to keep running up and down the stairs to keep it working.

I'm sold - thanks
