debootstrap is largely unmaintained and cumulating bugs by the dozen. 

Meanwhile, cdeboostrap sees regular uploads, operates faster (C source),
is a drop-in substitute providing the same functions as debootstrap and
is preferred over debootstrap by an increasing amount of users.

Basically, it's a good idea to let the user choose which one they'd
rather use by having "debootstrap | cdeboostrap" in Depends.
