How difficult would it be to add an additional parameter to the -t that would *lock* the user at that directory level.  say -T instead of -t...
By locking, I mean translating /path/to/file as ./path/to/file, or ../../../path/../../../path/to/file as ./path/to/file.
Basically set a root point as the current home directory, then build the pathing based on that, any "../" would become "./" if the "../" would go above that home directory.
Just a thought...
