Unlike your (otherwise wonderful) rewrite the former apt-move-3.0 did
honor the package and dist versions of the local apt-get package files and
didn't try moving packages other than the ones from potato into a
DIST=potato if e.g. woody packages are present as well in the apt cache.
Actually it didn't move a package into $DIST if it's version number didn't
match the ones from the local apt lists. This was a very comfortable
no-brainer and it's a pity this is gone now.
