Bug#700633: Debootstrap is very slow. Please use eatmydata to fix this.

Debootstrap is used in Debian ISO installer (debian-installer, d-i) for initial target rootfs bootstrapping. With sync enabled, this takes hundreds of minutes to unpack and configure base system on a HDD.

With eatmydata it takes about a minute.

What could be done to introduce eatmydata into debootstrap? Are propsed patches above (in message 50 and before) are not correct or not conform to Debian style or policy? If so, what should be improved?
