I thought that adt copies the source tree over to the target system.

If it doesn't, then that is right and this becomes just a space
optimisation so we can drop it if you want.

(Actually, I don't see why the package under test's debian/ directory is
needed at all at this step - it seems to me like it could just be a
skeleton whose debian/tests/control we generate from
needs_install.packages. But I didn't know for sure so went for this
route.

Actually┬▓, I don't get the reason why we generate this list at all.
Surely the boottest infrastructure has the list of packages it cares
about because it needs to know which packages to trigger a boottest for
in the first place and this script could consult a mapping into that
list directly.

Those are asides that don't need to block this review.)

p.s. still couldn't test it so it might break in some boneheaded way;
feel free to fix up directly and then merge yourself if it's easier once
you see what's wrong
