This is somewhat off topic, but is there a way to run piuparts
in a kvm instance? I already run my builds in a minimal virtual
machine, so it is OK for piuparts to install/remove/purge the package
in question. It would be nice to be able to tell piuparts not to bother
creating it's own chroot, but to assume it is running already in the
minimal test env.

It would be nice, if, like lintian, one could pass in a -v
switch to get multi-line explanations/details to aid in understanding
the output. The added bits may be static.
