chdist - script to easily play with several distributions
chdist [options] [command] [command parameters]
chdist is a rewrite of what used to be known as 'MultiDistroTools' (or
mdt). Its use is to create 'APT trees' for several distributions,
making it easy to query the status of packages in other distribution
without using chroots, for instance.
Provide a usage message.
-d, --data-dir DIR
