Bug#551838: Packages files fetched all over again each run

Package: debootstrap
Version: 1.0.20

The Packages files are fetched all over again each run.
There is no "check and see if we have the latest Packages file already
before downloading it all over again" each run.
I had interrupted

# debootstrap --include=wireless-tools,mc,wpasupplicant,console-tools \
--verbose --arch armel --print-debs --foreign sid armel-stage1 \

after it downloaded the Packages file and a few packages (despite
--print-debs as I mentioned in my previous report.)

Then I ran the same command over again, but without the --print-debs.

The Packages files were downloaded again, but thankfully not the
packages themselves which were already on disk.
