Start a fakechroot project :)

I have tested it, and it is really nice. I would be very interested
to be able to run a kind of pbuilder without needing root access.
AFAIK user-mode-linux require root access to set up the network
to have network access under uml.

Next step is of course to port it to other distros, so that we can build
Debian packages on them.

Use the real /proc ? Or I missed something.

Suppose a fakechroot in /fake/. In the fake chroot, /usr refer to

I would like the possibility to specify that some directories most not
have /fake prepended by fakechroot: that /proc in the fake chroot refer
to the real /proc not /fake/proc, for example.  This can also be useful
for /dev, etc...
