Our code is good when you are using different sources.list files
during installation and after installation. Maybe you do not need this

Yes, that's a good idea. But it's better to name the hook
preparepat.DEFAULT and use the fcopy inside this hook. But the you can
no have different sources.lsit file during and after the installation.

IMO a symlink will not work,
