We will likely need to keep it in there (debootstrap) for a while anyway
given scripts are used (through symlinks) for many distributions. But it
looks like a good idea to get overrides in line with reality anyway.

So ack from d-i rm; if anything breaks, things should be easy enough to
fix (famous last words).
