Use a Web proxy (like Squid) on one of your boxes,  and configure it to
give high priority and long expire-time to version-numbered .deb files.
Then set http_proxy to point to that box on all systems,  and use the same
URL(s) in your APT configuration files.  That way you use the best
available caching tool for that part of the job.
