Sounds like a cool feature! It would be even better if a 

include http://www.debian.org/apt.list

would be supported. Yes I know that would be a security risc, but
imagine one is having a local (intranet) mirror where one adds or 
removes parts of the tree. 
One could easly adjust apt.list, or whatever the file is
called on the server and do an apt-get update on each machine, instead
of fireing up an editor on each machine...

Hope you get the point?
