Bug#594052: debootstrap: create example /etc/hosts and /etc/fstab?

There are many things one might want to put inside a /etc/fstab
depending on the system being set up, and the current behaviour (not
listing anything) looks sane enough to me; systemd does the job mounting
many filesystems nowadays, so I'm not sure we need to add anything there.

/etc/hosts already gets contents through netbase's postinst, but only if
it's not present already. Let's not duplicate its postinst?
