debootstrap only knows to download the Release file once it knows what
suite to use. (Not all suites have had release files, eg)
Better to download the Release file from d-i, work out from that whatever
you want to work out, then pass it to debootstrap. (Which also lets you
let the user do some verification of the Release file before installing)
