Well, if you were paying attention, you would know that it's already
been done (at least for Freenet).


Doesn't even need an apt-freenet, since Freenet has an HTTP interface
built in. You just have to:

        apt-get install freenet

...and add some extra lines to your sources.list.

I believe EOF (Everything Over Freenet) needs some help maintaining
the "mirrors" in Freenet. Insertion is pretty expensive for Freenet,
so it's difficult for one person to keep up all 3 systems (potato,
woody, sid) and all N platforms, PLUS source. If you're really
interested, get involved!
