The big question I wanted an answer too was How can you override a package
lists entries, as at the moment I cant install anything without removing
some packages and installing others (because I forced an install)

I could go and edit the package list files and add/remove what I want, but
as my package lists are updated daily, this would cause far too many

Would also let me only have to upgrade libc6 and locales every 3 or 4
updates, not EVERY update which gets to me (seeing as theres about 5-9 mb
to download each time)

Anyone have any ideas?
