and i get a lot of uneeded files in the filesystem

 But a tool on top of debootstrap and the ltsp
do you think something like this 

ltsp-core has something similar(or debootstrap with --options) to
debootstrap lets say 

build_rootfs.sh  clientarch=i386/mips/ppc xservers=all/svga/vga16  
from=f.d.o  saveconf=/etc/ltsp/rootfs.conf

on secupdates we update ltsp-core

in postinst.ex have something like 
build_rootfs.sh readconf /etc/ltsp/rootfs.conf --update rootfs 
wich then will do nothing other then looking for newer debs download
them unpack them to the rootfs.

Please critic me if i'm wrong. i need to learn and figure out this.
