2020–09–11: Adding postmarket OS to multi-distro image

So I finally tried the pmbootstrap tool to create a bunch of rootfs tarballs for several postmarket OS UI variants: GNOME, Phosh, Plasma Mobile, fbkeyboard.

I've added them all to my multi-distro image without any increase in size since the previous public build of the image. So now it's a 13 distro multi-boot image with pretty much every major and a bunch of minor PinePhone supporting distributions, and it still fits on a 8GiB SD card!
