downloading files for face detection / red-eye removal

I have received a Debian bug report related to not being able to disable this 
download prompt.  I read through the Digikam bug report
show_bug.cgi?id=438317 and I see there is a "don't ask me again" option 
committed.  Did that first ship in version 8?

I have a few questions about these files.  

I believe the files are downloaded to the user's home directory.  If that's 
true, on a multi-user system there can end up with multiple copies?  Is there 
any facility to instead download one centralised copy?

If there's already a facility to check a centralised location, then could a 
downstream packager -- like Debian -- choose instead to bundle the files in 
their installer?
