Currently it detects if it's a pure debian system (not a mixed one) and
halts the process but I could add a parameter to force to retakeover a
debian system, so you could downgrade a whole system. But take into
account that until I don't implement the file to packages mapping it
will install only a base system, and it will not preserve the
configurations (only backup them).

But, I'll implement somehting, sure. ;>
