[pbuilder-dist-simple] claims to support Debian distributions

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-dev-tools

man pbuilder-dist-simple suggests that I could have a pbuilder-sid, but it doesn't actually work. The script only works with Ubuntu distributions.

Indeed. This is due to the hardcoded Ubuntu mirror that is present. Someone needs to either patch this to detect when to use a Debian mirror, or we need to stop claiming to support Debian chroots.

I can patch it to change mirror in case of a Debian distro being specified.

I've added a fix for it.

Do we actually need pbuilder-dist-simple? Why do we need both of them?

Change of plan, removed all mention of Debian, we'll keep a simple pbuilder-dist-simple.
