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 about having a pseudo-repository set up whenever a system is installed. It can be placed in /var/repository and addressd in sources.list as file:///var/repository ./ You drop a .deb file in there, run apt-update-repository to regenerate the Packages file, and then the package is now apt-getable. -Roberto Sanchez
