If you omit the components (main, contrib, non-free, etc.) and end the
distribution part of the sources.list line with a slash, then apt will
not try to add 'dists'.

For example:

  deb http://people.debian.org/~elphick/repository/debian woody/main/

It might do no harm for Oliver to add a 'dists' symlink pointing to
'debian' there, though, since the repository is laid out with
components. Otherwise you're going to need several sources.list lines if
you want contrib and non-free as well.
