There are a few places where debian-cd references the mirror, suite,
etc. which is a bit awkward here. Thinking about this, the *easiest*
way to do this would be to use the existing "local" support which can
pull in a local repo of changed .debs and .udebs on top of the base
Debian repo access. Simply setting up a local repo with the apt
packages in wouldn't be too hard here, and would solve the initial
installation problem. However, it might confuse people a little, and
I'll admit it might look ugly too.

I'll give it a try now...
