Yup, that was exactly what I was looking for, with the exception that it's
written in perl, and thus I'd have to put perl in the chroot (which is
generally a bad idea, since if someone can make their own tools, what good is
restricting their access to binaries?). I'll play with this is the meantime,
but a similar program written in C would be ideal.
