My setup is loosely derived from that described in section 3.2 of that
very document, which uses --print-uris.

Hmm, I was setting this up on another machine that has the bandwidth to
apt-get update right now, and:

Fetched 75.6kB in 1s (44.2kB/s)
zsh: segmentation fault  apt-get update

Unfortunatly when I run it again, it does not crash anymore.

Adding -o Debug::Acquire::gpgv=yes does not seem to add any additional
debugging info about why it cannot validate my file: repositories.
