can it be used on chroots without being installed in the chroot?
    adequate --root=/some/chroot mypkg

Sounds intersting. A few of them are already reported by piuparts, but I
could consider replacing them by an adequate test run there, too (with a
--root option, like we do with debsums). Having a "lightweight" tool
(compared to running piuparts locally) to check for these issues sounds
like a good idea.
