I think that will work.  Unfortunately, the last time I looked, the "origin"
feature is badly documented.  So I'm not sure about the quotes, or how much
of the URL you need.  But for example, I have

Package: k3b
Pin: origin debian.org
Pin-Priority: 991

and this does the trick.

Good luck,

Thanks! I should have done this *before* I posted of course, but I googled and found one hit on "Pin: origin" and it did *not* have the quotes, so I will try that.
