I setup Synaptic to do that. Just go into filers and click add, on the
first tab select every box, then on the second tab change it to
'include selected sections only', then just select the sections for
that repository, not that difficult seems Multiverse is listed as:
Multiverse/Section,  likewise for Universe and Restricted.
Not sure how to do this if you have 3rd party repositories installed,
but that's apparently a bad idea.
