Thanks for the feedback. Someone cleared it up for me in IRC in
#debian-devel.  I have updated the HOWTO.

As far as for building personal packages, you are right.  But, as the
default pbuilder behavior is to wipe out the temporary chroot after
every session, that should work for most people.  I haven't read far
enough into the docs to find out how to get it preserve the installed
packages, but that is because I like being able to build in a clean
environment every time and don't have an inclination to change it.  But,
your point is taken.
