Indeed. I would not like to see dpkg as the next "victim" of this problem.
Being able to bootstrap jessie from wheezy is highly desirable, but
IMHO not something that should prevent us from fixing bugs in dpkg
when we could just apply the short and simple fix to the wheezy
version of debootstrap:
- x_core_install base-files base-passwd
+ x_core_install base-passwd
+ x_core_install base-files
