With the newer 'apt' and 'aptitude' resolvers, where we are creating
a local apt archive, we already have the code to add additional
apt entries into /etc/apt/sources.list.d and update apt.  If we need
to add additional sources, and the existing buildd mechanism
(99builddsourceslist) is insufficiently flexible, then we can always
add them by allowing them to be specified on the command-line.  This
mechanism might be a somewhat simpler and more flexible alternative to
99builddsourceslist for the general case as well.
