cartopy caches natural_earth shp files

Description

cartopy by default, in order to cache natural_earth and other data, will create a directory tree

    /home/user/.local/share/cartopy/shapefiles

It would be an improvement to manage the duplication for the Live series. Relative to the size of a modern hard disk, even a VM, it is not very much disk space, however.

for a cost of 460K on disk, shapefiles could be pre-cached in the way cartopy expects them
