That's the normal way. This way allows me to install dozens of

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).

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.
