Contents-*.gz files are very usefull. AFAIR they are generated weekly.
Having to download them manually is not very comfortable.
Why not apt-get install contents-i386 and have it always up-to-date?
In addition, package could be upgraded only when Contents-*.gz file has
really changed (e.g sort both files and diff them or sth. like that)
