Hrm. I don't really have the b/width to make these available. They're pretty
easy to generate:

for a in alpha i386 powerpc; do 
	/usr/sbin/debootstrap --download-only --arch $a woody woody-$a http://ftp.debian.org/debian/
	(cd woody-$a && tar cf ../basedebs_3.0_$a.tar *)
	rm -rf woody-$a

Probably should be run as root to get sensible permissions on the debs,
and needs to be the latest debootstrap from unstable rather than testing,
but otherwise should be fine and easy.
