[Aptitude-devel] How use 'aptitude keep-all' without network connection?

I am using 'aptitude keep-all', since apt-get does not support that.

In a situation without networking (... script automation), 'aptitude
keep-all' runs without networking and runs forever without timeout. Also
package list updating isn't required at that point.

Is it possible to have 'aptitude keep-all' run without trying to do any
networking? I just want aptitude to set all packages currently listed
for auto removal to manually installed so they're kept.

(Only for these packages, not getting crude and setting that for all
installed packages.)
