I've refrained from making any changes to debootstrap's list of packages to
be installed for some time now, as a previous upload of mine making such
changes caused quite some irritation with the d-i folks.
I'll be happy to do an upload, provided there is a clear consensus from the
d-i folks as to which changes to the packages list are to be installed.
So, folks, what changes in the list of packages installed by debootstrap
would you like to see?

That's one of the things I'd like an answer to.
LWN normally tries to avoid talking much about Microsoft - it is simply
irrelevant to the free software world most of the time.
