I just noticed a couple of things about the base address.  First, you have a 
typo in line 4 of rebaselst (missing 'd').  Second, you use a default base 
address of 0x70000000 on both arches, but rebaseall uses 0x400000000 on x86_64.

I also just noticed that rebaseall passes the --no-dynamicbase option to rebase. 
  Maybe you should do the same, and then you could forget about the --noaslr 
option and unconditionally remove the call to peflags from rebase_do.

Sorry about the constant nitpicking, but I only just thought of comparing your 
script to rebaseall.

I'm going to test this now, but I've already tested earlier versions, so I don't 
expect to find any problems.

You've done a great service by improving setup.exe and _autorebase, and I 
personally think you deserve a gold star for this work.
