The use of cowbuilder-dist instead of pbuilder-dist

Hi everybody,

According to the man page of pbuilder-dist, the use of cowbuilder-dist
avoid the creation of the base.tgz, which means
pbuilder don't have to decompress and compress the chroot environment every
time it's invoked, which will save you a lot of
precious time, I think everyone using pbuilder-dist now should switch to
cowbuilder-dist (unless you don't have enough free
space on your disk) please tell me what you think.

Thanks in advance.

*My Best Regards,*
