True enough, I could do that.  And I just did.

I was hoping that someone had already done this on a debian machine, thus
saving me the bother.  :-)  

On the other hand, doing on my own machine has the advantage that I'm
root, so I can mess around with installing and de-installing packages.

On my third hand, I can only do this for the one architecture I have
handy.  In the (perhaps unlikely) event that I wanted to debug on some
other architecture, it would be fantastic to have some chrooted
environments handy.  [I'm sure the debian machine maintainers have 
a lot of time on their hands and could easily fit this in .... <ducking
and running>]
