this is something that has always bugged me about apt. i wish it would
assume that my local copy is a newer recompile (which is, almost
always, the case). sometimes i recompile packages to enable features
which are not on by default and then i have to put the packages on hold
because apt wants to get the remote ones.
can we please, please reverse the behaviour, or at least make it
configurable in /etc/apt/apt.conf, something like PreferLocal "yes".
if there is such an option and i missed it, please point it out to me.
