Hi Matt,

I like debootstrap a great deal, but the image produced by debootstrap
is much larger than we want, this is for an embedded application. I am
aware of the embedian project, but that is at the other end of the
spectrum; we don't need to be as compact as that.

One kludge would be to use debootstrap and thun run a cleanup script
to remove files not required by our application ... like
/usr/share/doc for example.
