I'll have to try that out then. I was reading up on Q and E, do you
think we would have any problems using Q&E? It didn't look like 
it but the explanations I read were long for Q&E, looking for other
details, opinions...

Yea I am still looking, and if you can verify the XML::Parser info being
right, maybe we have found a bug(?). Would seem to be a silly one

Yes agreed we need a tag. As for implementation, I dunno yet either. 
Here is some fodder from the camel book on chroot...

3.2.17 chroot


This function does the same operation as the chroot system call - see 
chroot(2). If successful, FILENAME becomes the new root directory for the 
current process - the starting point for pathnames beginning with "/". This 
directory is inherited across exec calls and by all subprocesses. There is no 
way to undo a chroot. Only the superuser can use this function.
