 Doing a 'chroot' from Perl

I need to write an app that does a 'chroot', is there a way to do
that?  I can do it brute-force via the chroot(1) app, and just pass
the rest of my app in as its command line.  [Amusingly, I can even do
this with my *own* app, without having to split my app in two: by
doing something like:

>>> if (-d "/home")
>>> {  # There's no '/home' in the chroot hierarchy!!
>>>    # ...and yes, the chroot hierarchy has to have *this* program
>>>    # the same place as the real hierarchy (plus all of the libs
>>>    # ... and everything else you need to execute afresh).  LABTYD.

>>> }
>>> # If you get here, then it is the chroot'ed iteration.

Right at the beginning of the program...

But I was wondering if there might be a more elegant way to manage it
directly within perl...

Feh.. what a loser I am..   I was *SURE* I looked through all of the
perl docs, but after an email or two this morning I see that even the
most cursory peek at both the online docs and the Camel book show
"chroot", right there where it belongs.  Sigh...  Apologies.. I can't
imagine what delusion possessed me yesterday...
