Put your small setup.ini listing the virtual package on a server with an
empty tarball. Then point setup to the server whenever you update. Don't
forget to can point it at multiple servers.

If you're just creating an install from disk/CD, you can leave the
setup.ini and empty tarball in a subdirectory of the main package cache
directory, it won't be overwritten by any update and the default
selection will be enforced.

packages/setup.ini  << downloaded by setup
packages/custom/setup.ini << contains virtual
