The ltsp-pnp method of maintaining LTSP installations without a
chroot is now upstream in LTSP.

It's no longer a separate package; all that's needed is to run
   ltsp-update-image --cleanup /

and that will generate an /opt/ltsp/images/i386.img image out
of the server disk contents, while excluding sensitive data like
user accounts and ssh keys.

The newer LTSP version required is currently available for Ubuntu
12.04 from a PPA and it should be available later on for Debian
Wheezy as well.
