How about just changing your hosts file?

Yes, thats true however it would seem that there is either only one virtual host or the default one is nz2.archive.ubuntu.com so the matter is moot
Also your post says
then change every "nz.ubuntu.com" to "nz2.ubuntu.com"
should be nz.archive.ubuntu.com to nz2.archive.ubuntu.com should it not, its correct in your examples though ;p
