apt-walkabout, a take-away APT cache

Update: now available as a darcs repository

Have you ever felt that no .deb should ever have to be downloaded more than once? apt-walkabout is an APT package cache on a pen drive, or any other removable media. apt-walkabout helps you to upgrade non-connected or low-speed linked Debian systems; be they yours or someone elses that you visit.

It's just a few shell scripts; but it's the idea that counts.
