Well netselect isn't on the base system, and adding it for this little thing
would probably be bloat. It'd also only work if you were on the net as soon
as your new debian system boots, which limits it to people on LAN's.
However, the aptconf script I wrote will also work after the initial
boot, and it could certianly use netselect at that point.
