I didn't know anything about /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ before, thanks Panu!

To answer the original question: Putting your own file as Panu suggests is
probably the best solution, unless you don't want my repositories to ever
be accessed, in which case you could simply have your sources.list
installed somewhere by your package (in its docs for ex, or in /etc/apt/ as
sources.list.something), then in the %post section, replace the "original".
That way, when upgrading apt later on, the default config will be installed
as sources.list.rpmnew by rpm, and your "custom" file kept.
