Sameer asked this on SVLUG's list, too (didn't notice he asked here at LUGOD).
Over there, I also suggested apt-proxy.
To others, see: http://apt-proxy.sourceforge.net/ for details.

(Note: This is one of those project websites which barely explain what
the purpose of the software is. The front page is just all news, and no
"About" :^/ Example: Someone on the Gimp User Group had never heard of
Scribus before, and had no idea what it was for. I mentioned this lack of
descriptive text to their webmaster... sounded like he was gonna fix it,
but he apparently hasn't yet. :^( )
(Note 2: The apt-torrent "Documentation" page does explain it a little,
thankfully. :^) )
