Photoshop: Need an easier way to re-link to Cloud Library assets after a PSD has been Packaged for archive

// IN BRIEF: I need a one-click method to replace local linked assets with Cloud assets of the same name. // 

My team has been a champion of the Adobe Cloud workflow, but we're running into storage capacity & asset issues. 

We save active PSDs to the cloud, counting against our 100gb space. Anything that is more than a few months old, we Archive by Packaging (File > Package) our PSDs and saving them to In the process of packaging, this pulls down any Linked Cloud assets into a local folder, BREAKING the link to the cloud. As you know.

However if we need to go back into the archive on there is no easy way to re-connect to the Cloud Library assets (rather than using the Links folder generated when packaging) and we are forced to manually re-link to the cloud one-by-one. Pretty tedious on complex documents.

This is a great hinderance to our workflow as we are limited to the 100gb storage cap (insufficient if we keep ALL things on the cloud) and we don't have a local server where these files may live in a shared capacity.
