Bug#545403: live-helper: packageslists directory created in config but unused

Package: live-helper
Version: 1.0.5-1
Severity: normal

The chroot_local-packageslists directory is created in the configuration
but not used.

This is confusing for the users because at least some other directories
created in cthe configuration work automagically.

There are two ways how this can be resolved:

 - put a readme file there explaining the use of the directory
   (with all lines prefixed with # so that it works as empty packageslist)
 - change the default configuration to (explicitly) load the lists in
   the directory

This is the line I use (but it could use a bit of tuning to be more
generally acceptable)
