That seems like such overkill. For every installation of my software
outside of the default, the user now has to install another copy of a
complete (even if minimal) debian system. And that would require
either that to install my software the machine would have to be
connected to the Internet, or that I also need to separately supply and
figure out how to install locally a debian mirror on that host. Ugh.
