Arggh. Very long moments of frustration trying to install a Debian testing chroot, `debootstrap` blamed `systemd` via `dpkg`:

Detected unsafe path transition / -> /var during canonicalization of /var/log/journal.

Turns out it was user error: I had to have the target directory owned by root:root *before* invoking debootstrap (I'm fairly sure it worked with regular `mkdir` at some point in the past...).

This is so I can use `VARResults.simulate_var()`, the version of python3-statsmodels in Buster is too old to support it. VAR being vector autoregression, which I'm hoping to use for sound analysis and generation.
