Several misc questions regarding grml-debootstrap...

- Does debootstrap download packages? If yes, where does it place
downloaded packages?

- Since grml-debootstrap also install packages defined in
/etc/debootstrap/packages into the chroot system, is it a good idea to
bind mount /var/cache/apt/archives into the chroot system as well, so as
to save the downloading and cleaning up?

- furthermore, I think over 99% people would have same apt/sources.list and
apt/preferences in host and chroot system. If so, would it be a good idea
for the same bind-mount option bind mount /etc/apt/sources.list &
/etc/apt/preferences into the chroot system as well? 

- is it a good idea to pre-seed package configurations with 

 dpkg --set-selections
