But how do I modify the apt.conf in such a way that
it gets used by both debootstrap and pbuilder and yet
doesn't affect normal installs on my workstation?

Perhaps a better approach is a pbuilder API for this
sort of thing. Perhaps a hook or hooks for user
scripts to intervene at key points before the base.tgz
gets tarballed?
