Bug#839046: debootstrap: enable --merged-usr by default

Control: found -1 1.0.87

This change was reverted in 1.0.87 as dpkg-shlibdeps didn't cope
properly with a merged-usr system. Thus reopening this bug report for
that version.

The dpkg-shlibdeps bugs has been fixed [1] in the mean time. So it would
be great if this bug report could be re-considered.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
