With --debian-installer "false" it has no effect on the inclusion of
the .debs I noted were included in the binary-tar.tar.gz file.

Going back to my email from earlier today, why would anyone want
copies of the .debs when they are already installed in
binary/boot/filesystem.dir ? It seems like binary/dist and
binary/pool should be deleted from the resulting tarball.
