I would urge people not to spend their effort responding to messages
they obviously have no interest in.

To answer Daniel's question: a separate directory for each stage is
probably sufficient; you can run dpkg-scanpackages on each directory
to generate a Packages file, and use symlinks for identical packages.
Unless you have a lot of packages or feel like setting up a RDBMS for
your own entertainment, pools are overkill.
