To build a local mirror of packages that you have installed, you can use 
apt-move.  This tool only works for the official set of packages .   I'm 
still trying to figure out how to build a local mirror of unofficial packages 
that I've used apt-get or dselect to install.  In any event, to simplify the 
question for someone who might know the answer we're looking for...

If I have a set of .deb packages that aren't part of the official debian 
distribution, how can I get them into an apt-getable directory structure, 
complete with Packages.gz and Sources file?

Can someone point us in the right direction?  Please?

Did you know that if you play a Windows 2000 cd backwards, you 
will hear the voice of Satan?

That's nothing!  If you play it forward, it'll install Windows 2000.
