As far as I know, I'm the only one using it and I didnt write anything
else that does the same thing better so far ;)
Polystrap is a tool serving a purpose similar to many existing software
packages. The only thing that makes it a bit more than another NIH
solution is the fact that you create a tarball of a foreign Debian
system without needing superuser priviliges ever throughout the whole
process. This is what others can't yet do even though it is only about
correctly connecting existing tools.
