It takes just some minutes to restore a complete install from an
archive, IMO it makes no sense to make a deafult install and then to
copy back configs and data and to install additional stuff. And what is
a default install? You might have a combination of the default install
and upgrades and you don't know if you would get the same upgraded
package versions again from a repository.

Btw. at the moment I can't install libslv2-dev, because there's a
dependency missing for Debian stable?!
If I should e.g. solve this issue, I won't have to do this again, when a
backup is needed.
