Right now, diskimage-builder customizes already existing images. It is
not Ubuntu specific, users are making use of it with Fedora images quite

For it to work with Debian, we'd need some kind of base line root
filesystem. Debootstrap would work, though IIRC there are some reasons
that this is undesirable.
