Agreed with where it should be placed, but it's not quite so clear
where it should be created: it needs to be (well, ideally would be)
updated with every upload of either debootstrap, or any package in base.

On the upside, it's simple to create them, given an installed copy of
debootstrap. Hrm, I probably should change that so that you can just run
'debian/rules basedebs' from an unpacked source tree. Hrm.
