I said it in my email further up: you can't nest mock builds, and it
requires extra steps by root to configure mock.

Practically this means that appliances can't be built in mock or Koji.

febootstrap fixes the above and allows appliances to be built inside
mock, because it doesn't need root, or setuid helper programs, or
bind-mounting, or anything else like that.  It runs yum using fakeroot
and fakechroot.  This wasn't possible previously, but I've pushed
upstream sufficient patches to make yum and %post scripts work in
fake{,ch}root environments.
