I haven't tried apt-get. I used dselect, with mixed results. Like

the access settings to point directly to the right Packages.gz, it

as fast as things are added to the archive, because it did not
recognize my Python-* Tk-* or Tcl-* stuff (which was in the archive)
and listed them all as "obsolete"....
