stem.descriptor.remote.DescriptorDownloader() in the doc page "Mirror Mirror on the Wall". As you likely know, this package can save just about any variable to a file in a one-liner, and reload it any time in the future with another one-liner:
It was the solution I used when considering how to get descriptors for research. Mentioning it in the docs would probably prevent some lazy or inexperienced Python users from putting a lot of load on directory authorities by constantly downloading descriptors.
