I noticed the same issue WRT the dependency, thanks for actually filing
a bug!

In terms of fixing it:
- ideally, but this is my personal opinion, this would be done in the guest/chroot at image creation time, and we wouldn't have to compute this from the host; just defer to when we have the packages lists
- if that's not possible, use urllib2 and parse packages.gz with python-apt; see "suite-diff" for some sample code parsing packages.gz

Note that the latter will actually bypass GPG verification; it would be
nice to GPG verify the Packages.gz... even if currently rmadison is
completely untrustable.

suite-diff sample code:
