Yes sir, that will do nicely, thanks for the pointer.

It seems that apt-move only works on the actual machine where you want to
run the mirror:  there does not seem to be a way to point the local
directory to a third machine.  So, for my centralised Debian package
archive, it looks like I should rsync the /var/cache/apt/archives
direcories of any machines I set up to the correspondig directory on my
local mirror machine, and run apt-move on that one machine.

Does that sound like a reasonable way to go about things?
