This complicates an already complicated etc/rc.d/jail script so I
think this is a very bad idea.  rc.d/jail is already interesting
enough security wise as it is IMO.

If anyone wants this very much think it should be done in an
"external" (to etc/rc.d/jail) jail management system/script.

Personally I have been very happy with ezjail, and I think having a
script like that "externally" is a much better way to go.  If that
means importing ezjail or making something like it I don't know.
