Also, pbuilder and debootstrap are considered absolutely critical for

That's a bold statement.


Never used either one.

I have cdebootstrap do create chroots, dchroot to use them,
buildd/sbuild to test compile under true buildd conditions. Why would
I want something else?

Debootstrap couldn't even handle dependency resolving a while back.

I think that by debootstap David was including both normal and cdebootstrap.
After all, cdebootstrap is mostly a port of debootstrap, although with some improvments.
