only at the works for me stage.

The sbuild package chroot creation sucks and I don't know when
I'll get to improving it -- poor net connection currently and
it's not very interesting. :-) You set up the chroots once
and then just keep them current from then on.
It might make sense to add sbuild to your package, maybe as an
alternate build method. I haven't checked out out pbuilder yet
so I don't know if this make sense. I'll grab it right now.
There's currently a little fork with the sbuild in most common
use and CVS. If you want to combine the two packages, I could
co-maintain until this settles down; or not?
