I've got an idea how to do it without any extra args. What
	* we find a hookdir arg
	* we then look for a file named sid/woody/potato
	  or whatever in that hookdir, and if found use
	  that instead of the default one for debootstrap?

I am envisioning a given hookdir as containing the full
definition of a complete private release, so this seems
reasonable (to me at least).

If you like the idea, I'll code it. Shouldn't be difficult
at all.
