You'll need to clarify a bit more, I'm afraid I don't follow -- when
you say "chroot" are you meaning a *local* chroot, and you want
sudo/run/etc to execute locally and inside that chroot? Otherwise I'm
not sure what you're asking for.

Either way, I'm not sure I like the proposed API change, it seems both
very niche in application and departs pretty significantly from the
current conceptual execution model.

If you could highlight your specific use case here (i.e. what are you
doing by hand right now?) that might help.

Sure -- thanks! If you do, please submit a pull request via Github,
and include a link to ticket #289 as I feel it's strongly related.
