I have installed such an apt-proxy server at the bureau of the Norwegian Red 
Voting Alliance and it works perfectly. However, that only means that each 
package only has to be downloaded once; it does not mean that all machines 
are kept synchronized. The best way of doin that is by opening a KDE konsole, 
opening many sessions, set one to "broadcast mode" and write "ssh 
someuser at" in that session and just exchanging the last 1 with 
another number in all other sessions. Then you can synchrnically execute 
stuff on all machines at the same time.

Huh? I don't really think the pre-1.1.2-versions are usable for much of 
anything other than making one-page docs as it will just go down speed-wise 
to the point of being unusable in no time whatsoever. :-)
