Help, please no. More supports for chroots may be nice. But not this
way! init.d-scripts calling scripts, that parse global config files
is ugly and one of the many points to make people switch from Suse or
Redhat to debian. 
And why should there be an global config file for all daemons? Beeing
chrooted is an quite personal thing for every package. Why should
an daemon that run chroot (and there are not that many, that can
can be run there) parse a file which is of no interest for him but
for the other daemons?
