Well, maybe. Another way to do it would be to make it walk over
apt-setup/local[0-9] and add the ones it finds.

Seems like a pretty good patch although we'll also have to document it
in the installation manual. 

What about apt key issues though, a local repo will not be signed by the
Debian archive key, so apt will refuse to install packages from it
unless a key is also somehow provided.

Probably the echo should go inside the if block.

No need to localise this since it doesn't ask the question.
