no easy way to tell which repo is hanging an update

Bug Description

When a repository is extremely slow or unresponsive, apt-get update hangs with a "[Waiting for headers]" message. There is no way to tell which repository is causing the hang.

A soft kill (specifically SIGINT), received by apt-get should cause it to display the repository currently being accessed prior to termination.
