I don't think there is.

Your best bet is something like this:

  grep vsftpd /var/lib/apt/lists/*_Packages | grep Filename

  ftp.us.debian.org_debian_dists_sarge_main_binary-i386_Packages:Filename: pool/main/v/vsftpd/vsftpd_2.0.1-1_i386.deb

  wget ftp://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/v/vsftpd/vsftpd_2.0.1-1_i386.deb

  dpkg --force-conflicts -i vsftpd_2.0.1-1_i386.deb

I agree this sucks.  It's dumb that apt-get won't even download the debs for
you if they conflict with something.
