ACK.  Now I see what you're trying to do.  My eyes must have
glazed over....

Maybe there's a way to tell apt to use a different cache/admindir etc.,
a different arch, and just do download only.  I know there's a way to use
a different admindir since boot-floppies uses it and I know you can tell
it to download only.  So the question is, can you tell it, from linux,
to use hurd-i386 arch when looking at the mirrors?  Maybe you can ask
on one of the other lists (I'm sure Joey could tell you).

Good luck,
