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.
