Hmm, aren't we now trying to solve the problem of how to get
maemo-optify into the build environment, not how to run it once it's

I.e., we have modified the debian-etch devkit to call maemo-optify-deb
at the right time.  That modification to the devkit is 'stable'.  It is
quite unlikely that we need to change the devkit again.

What would root at garage need to do, exactly?  Create new rootstraps?  Run
apt-get install maemo-optify once in a while?  (Run pbuilder --update? :)

If root at garage can do it, could the auto-builder do it as well?
