My ~/.cargo/config.toml reads:

 offline = true
 replace-with = "debian"
 directory = "/usr/share/cargo/registry"

This works really well in my case.

As far as smooth solutions for opting in to crates.io in particular
circumstances, I and others have collected some notes on [1]. But in
reality I get very far with the above Cargo config + manually adding the
odd crate (or crate version) when it's not available in Debian.
