I have just started work on something like this (basically reading
through the ezjail code; no new code has yet been written). I know
this idea goes against Dirk's design philosophy of ezjail, so I'm
wondering whether to create a set of patches or to fully fork a
project from ezjail. This is for an internal project of my employer's,
so it has a much lower priority than client work. But if there is much
interest, I might be able to make some extra time for it.
