That last is really excellent news! I have some slow systems where using
gzip will be *much* faster than bzip2 is.
But I missed the change (or at least its importance) during my normal
quick scan of the changelog. Could you possibly add a NEWS.Debian item
announcing the new config option (including an example maybe), and also
mentioning the new preference order?
P.S. The new apt runs fine in my amd64-sid chroot, using my local mirror.
