apt-proxy had issues when I tried (as well as others, which I cannot rememeber 
now), approx iirc requires to changes /etc/apt/sources list, squid always 
worked for me and never had issues, squid is useful for more then just 
proxying apt repositories, squid can be set up as a transparent proxy quite 
easily, updating a full/partial mirror usually takes more bandwidth then just 
using a proxy.
