Probably, but these are really quite minor patches.

crosshurd and dpkg-cross do not conflict.  crosshurd is a cross-arch
debootstrap.  It will eventually be integrated into debootstrap.

Concur.  I think the biggest barrier to this right now is sane
integration into the binutils package.  Once we have that maintainer in
agreement, we'll have the solution for at least all Debian arch's.

What I added with the --with-sysroot support will help embedded folks,
too, though.
