I don't actually remove the directory /var/cache/apt/archives.
I just move its contents. As far as I can tell, that is identical
to doing an "apt-get clean".
"/mnt/apt/dists/latest/binary-i386" is just an extra directory
I use as my local apt-mirror. I mount it so it doesn't get blown
away when I erase the disk.
