I was thinking of a hurdish alternative to fakeroot. What we need is
just a way of chown files to any user without having root proviledges.

Well, IMHO a good solution is to hack ext2fs to allow that. Maybe
with a special option and starting it dinamicaly with a "fakeroot"
script. I need to think about this.
