How will it know the corresponding between the 'hard' code name (ie etch)
and the logical code name (ie stable) ? Do not forget that this is the
*same* package that will be in unstable, then testing, stable and oldstable.
So this cannot be hardcoded in the program.
  Perhaps cdebootstrap can look at somewhere on the net (I do not use
cdebootstrap myself, so I do not know). But this feature (allowing testing, ...)
cannot be solved just by adding aliases directly in the package itself.

  Best regards,
