very unsatisfying.

Why not simply automate setting it at install time using preseed? I'm honestly not sure who the target audience for auto-apt-proxy is--apparently someone who has an infrastructure including a proxy, possibly the ability to set dns records, etc., but can't change defaults at install time or via some sort of runtime configuration management?
