It's not mentioned in the apt man page, and there is no reference to
apt_preference in them :(. I only found it because I was looking at the BTS
page for apt for another thing, and I saw a bug about apt_prefereces not
being referenced. So, I thought, "Oooh secret documentation, cool :)".

I hadn't really thought about it, since I'm relatively new to Debian (about
a year), and I've been busy with school during term. I was pretty
happy to discover that feature, though :)
