One downside of cloning Debian based images is that debootstrap, dpkg
and package maintainer scripts leave system-specific files (like
openssh private keys, systemd machine ids, dbus machine ids etc) in
the resulting image and you have to workaround that after generating
the image.

How does Kadeploy currently deal with this sort of issue?

Perhaps we need to merge the Debian cloud/live team's handling of this
issue and put that in a package that Kadeploy can use...
