I guess this is the cleaner way and should be attempted first.

That might also help to,

- make programs that use of $DEBOOTSTRAP switch to use mmdebstrap by
- when $DEBOOTSTRAP is set to mmdebstrap, adding the Debian security
- make more users benefit from this security improvement by default
without knowing.

In case 1. fails, 2. can still be attempted.
