OK, I see. Actually debootstick should get important new features shortly.
Thus I might have to rebuild a package in one or two weeks, I guess. That
is why I did not bother Vincent too much for now. But I will see how fast
things go, and if things go slower I will soon remind Vincent about this
version of the package (or look for temporary alternate sponsorship).
Thanks for the information.
