Bug#827822: Poor error message in debootstrap invocation

Package: debootstrap
Severity: normal

If debootstrap is invoked like so: `sudo debootstrap jessie jessie --include=openssh-server` it errors out with `/usr/sbin/debootstrap: 314: set: Illegal option --`. The correct invocation is to move teh `--include` before `jessi`, but it'd be nice if a readable error message was emitted. (I'm using an older tutorial for invoking debootstrap which suggested the original invocation, I'm not sure if debootstrap's syntax has changed since then, or that post never worked)
