Currently I do this by using the primary Debian mirror and adding
custom sources in config/archives.
If there was an option to add a custom source that would cover images
which I was doing when Squeeze was fresh and I did not pull packages
from Sid. Now I would need a third source for Wheezy/Sid anyway so it
would not be that much help setting my local repo as 'derivative'.
