    I use apt-cacher, not a proxy in a true sense but a Perl cgi script that mimics a proxy. I caught Jonathan Oxer's talk about it at debConf @ Linux Conf Au 03 and went home and installed it that night. Rusty (of iptables fame and who also wrote apt-proxy) was in the audience and he made some interesting comments about his own software :)

      Nomis52 you make me curious what did Rusty say?
