That's great Barry. I'm interested to know how you solve the
chroot-script issue.

I don't think copying the script to the same location in the chroot
will help. Basically, as I see it, there will be a process which will
try to access a file (the script) outside the new filesystem.

One solution would be to determine just what files are
modified/installed (in the chroot) and then do it all within the
script from outside the chroot.
