Damn, how often do I need to write that I'm able to chroot a bind
manually on any os,  not depending on debian for that task? Don't you
read my mails or do you just try to keep this thread alive and annoy me
with such assumptions?

chroot in both ways (mount --bind and an alternative like cp,rsync) or
don't support that and let still the administrator do this manually, if
he wants/needs.

I love it, when people are ignoring my question and and getting a nice
