That just gave me an idea... (if you're sane you'll stop reading now)
Canonical could sell external hard disks with version(s),
architecture(s) and (what do you call those things which main,
restricted, universe and multiverse are?)(s) which you choose on them.
After you've chosen what you want (eg main and restricted for feisty and
dapper), they recommend the right size hard drive for you. They put the
repos on the hard drive and send it to you.
Then perhaps you could send it back to them and them pay them a bit to
update it...
Except there'd probably not be much demand for this. It would only be
useful in large businesses, which would almost undoubtedly have an
internet connection. Oh well... My idea sucks... Live with it.
