Restricted SFTP

As I have mentioned earlier on this list, I want to allow (relitivly)
untrusted local users to SFTP to my server, as a secure method of remote
file access.   

What I would like to do is to keep users within their home directory.  I
don't mind that it follows symlinks (if fact its probably a
requirement), but some basic restriction on what users can see/access
would be handy.

The check I would propose would simply be 'all files/direcories served
must start with /home/username'.

Is this at all possible?
