First off I'd like to thank you for the information. I looked at
apt-proxy and it almost does what I want to do. Perhaps I should explain
a little more. I want to get a subset of what is currently installed on
my system with some additional packages, I don't want to have them
installed first on my local system, and I don't want all of the packages
that are on my local system (such as x, and other uneeded applications
for my other systems).

I will probably fall back to getting the files manually and creating a
repository. I was just hopeful that someone had already done something
similar that would allow for an easy update of the packages using apt.
Thanks for the information, I may hack at the apt-proxy code and see if
I can make it do what I want it to.
