Right. I'll postpone adding support for this until later, then. For the
time being, I assume piuparts will mostly be run on relatively fast
machines. Once slow machines become more relevant for piuparts, I'll
return to this issue and will look at schroot in more detail. Thanks for
pointing it out, I didn't know about it before.

(Likewise, UML/Xen support will probably happen only later.)

Never underestimate the power of a small tactical Lisp interpreter.
