[OT] How to serve apt. http vs nfs

I also only use apt via http, usually with squid as a proxy. 

I do this, due the ease of setup and because I can use http everywhere. Using 
nfs is faster though: with http, the .debs get first downloaded (and written) 
to /var/cache/apt/archives and then are unpacked, while if you use nfs (or 
rather apts file transfer), they will be directly unpacked.

If this speed gain is worth the more complicated setup, is up to you.
