Using snapshots with reprepro to enable rollbacks

http://serverfault.com – I'm using reprepro to maintain a Private Package Archive of internal packages. There is no straightforward way to keep multiple version of a package available using reprepro (see here), but it does have a snapshot facility that sort of works. But only sort of. I don't see a good way to go back to a snapshot version. There is a command restore documented, but it doesn't seem to work (reprepro version 4.8.2 on Ubuntu 12.4.1 LTS). I can access the snapshot via apt-get as described in the man page, by editing sources.list to include something like deb method://as/without/snapshot codename (HowTos)
