Exercise: It's hard to come up with a relevant exercise, as there are so many

existing translators -- if possible, something touching name resolution or and
such, e.g. implementing file_reparent() in a translator that doesn't support it

+I have factored out the proxying-bits from fakeroot so that it can be shared.
+The most simple chrooting translator is the identity translator, which proxies
+RPCs without really modifying them. Combining the identity translator with
+`settrans --chroot` gives us `chroot(8)`. With a little more work, I believe
+that can be used to implement `chroot(2)`. Whether or not that is secure
+remains to be seen, maybe that is even an ill-conceived goal.
