Things look good so far.

I'd like to run a command in the jail as the jailed user, from a script
that is run by root outside of the jail.
Normally I think this can be achieved by "su - jaileduser -c
but I think there are problems with this approach:

i) using su is bad?
ii) I get the following output:
su: warning: cannot change directory to /path/to/script/inside/jail:
Permission denied
/bin/bash: /path/to/script/inside/jail: Permission denied

Is there an easier way to accomplish this?
Or should I do something like setting up ssh within the jail and ssh
using the jailuser's identity into localhost to run the jaileduser's script?

I've implemented this in the development code in CVS. You can run

su testuser -c 'my jailed command'

it won't work without the quotes around the command.
