The chroots are created with a command like

['debootstrap', '--variant=minbase',
'--components=main', '--arch=amd64', 'sid', '/tmp/piupartss/tmpv4a4v7',

so debootstrap (still) pulls this in by default (just recreated my sid
chroot). I didn't dig deeper, though ...

I'd prefer debootstrap creating such a minimal chroot by default over
"cleaning the chroot" in piuparts.

(debootstrap 1.0.84 does not seem to bring relevant changes over 1.0.83)
