user-mode-linux has too big overload and it is available only for i386 
architecture. I've tested my modified fakeroot on alpha, sparc and ia64 and it 
works pretty well. 
I read another thread about fakeroot and I think I'll start new project called 
i.e. fakechroot which will be based on original fakeroot. The original project 
should be as stable as it is possible. My library is too experimental.
