No; unixd_setup_child() does lots of stuff which is directly incompatible
with the way mpm-itk works. I could copy out the chroot stuff into mpm-itk,
but I honestly don't see the point; it doesn't really win you much security,
and it would require an extra capability to be added to mpm-itk's set. Just
set your permissions correctly :-)
