Looking good. I noticed a small visual improvement in the handling of
the fetch= and netconfig= parameters. The combination of fetch= and
toram still takes an additional copy using rsync. IIRC I reported this
years ago - but given today's hardware the cost is a delay of three
seconds the most on -small, I will not bother any longer ...

Also, I noticed using apt(-get) update:

| W: Download is performed unsandboxed as root as file | '/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/security.debian.org_dists_testing_updates_InRelease' | couldn't be accessed by user '_apt'. - pkgAcquire::Run (13: Permission | denied)

This isn't new and not a blocker. Still, it was nice if it could be
fixed (how?).

So, rather "Leipziger Gmias"?
