[OpenAFS] Is it in the cache?

I was experimenting using AFS on my cluster and the results look pretty

However, one of the cluster job developers wants to know if there is a
way to tell whether or not a file is in the AFS cache.  His jobs compute
a fair amount of intermediate data and when the second part of his job
starts up, the node ranks may not be the same.  He'd like a way to
quickly determine what is in the cache and read everything local.

Is there anyway to determine if a file's data is cached locally given
the path to the file?
