I wrote a perl script to do something related, it will read in a list
of packages installed upon a machine, then write that list to a cache
If you run it again it will show what packages have been added/removed
since the previous run.
Packaged for Debian and available here:
(The name is dpkg-changes)
Updating it to read in a new list would be trivial, as would
downloading the packages via a shell-out to apt-get.
I hope that's useful to you.
