I had thought of that, but didn't consider it "clean" because it
"taints" the build system. That being said, it's a clever workaround. I
wonder if we could somehow support such aliasing of cdn.debian.net to
the local mirror within live-build itself instead of having to mess with
the build system's hosts file.
