download-only and local mirrors don't interact well

re:    "- remove rsync mirroring stuff; we get packages as needed apt-get"

as far as I can tell it doesn't play well with a local mirror --
apt-get doesn't actually copy anything in download-only mode... which
makes sense, but breaks this usage :-) I don't see an obvious flag to
change that, looking at the man page; perhaps apt-move can be
subverted for this case?  I'll look at that next...			_Mark_
