Distributed *.deb

We want to introduce Debian as the Linux standard for the Computing
centre here at our computing centre.

This means that it should fit in with the existing multi-architecture
structure, which combines HPs and AIXen into a common tree.  This
means that all applications not usually supplied with commercial Unixes
come from "segment" servers, with centralized administration and
defaults.  A segment server is typically located on a local Ethernet.
[It's actually more complicated and flexible, details upon request.]

Now, the problem:  How do I tell dpkg that packages are already
installed in another location?  Is there a way to merge two dpkg
databases at different locations?
