apt-get should be able to install packages "directly"

That's the normal way. This way allows me to install dozens of
module-source packages and build module packages from them for Debian
kernels, without having to install a half GiB of additional software
that I really do not need.

What we really need is the apt-get extension mentioned here a while ago
that would allow you to run apt-get on local packages (without
generating a local repository as described by Michel here).

	wissen was es tut."
<josef> azeem: apt-get ist ein Tool, ein Werkzeug. Man nimmt doch auch von
	einem Hammer nicht an daß er schon weiß was er tut, wenn er mit
	60 km/h auf deinen Daumen zurast.
