Ah, yes, it locates and checks all the archives before even thinking about
continuing. What you could do is run dpkg-scanpackages on your mirror to
generate a Packages.gz that is valid for your mirror and then put at the
end of sources.list a http site - it would then download only the things
that it couldn't fetch locally from the mirror.
