Yes, this quest is about another name for polystrap. I mean there is no need to spent time on the previous name. > qemu-config is available as a package name in Debian. > > TBH the configuration of a set of packages using emulation is the real > task done by this tool.

Yes, that is how program_that_is_being_renamed currently works. My point is that people will be looking for a program that builds a complete foreign bootstrap, they wouldn't be looking for emulation configuration. At least, I would skip qemu-config and emulation-config when in search for a foreign bootstrap builder and finisher. Wishing wisdom to the actual writer of the program we are talking about.
