I actually just use a standard wwwcache, such as squid, and ensure that
the replace, refresh times are not too great that squid dumps the
Packages.gz/ *.debs before I get a chance to download on my second machine.

So I have the one gateway machine running squid and all my hosts on
the inside use it as their http_proxy.  Totally transparent and doesn't
rely on any special 'debian' software on the gateway..
