Bug Description

Here's another idea for the future I thought I'd share that could expand on the usefulness of the CLIcompanion project.

Basically the idea is for the ability to run commands in a "chrooted jailed" environment, either through the setup process or via preferences a chrooted user namely "clicompanion" be created.

This feature could therefore be used as a sandbox area, especially for CLI-virgins learning the shell, and also as a place to protect against potentially fatal, lethal & evil commands on a live system.
