Oh believe me, Randy.  I build remotely too (I have my server in the 
datacenter, plus my home server that I only have access to via SSH), and 
even if the default position of the book was to take the reboot method, 
the chroot method could easily be documented in a hints format.  There 
wouldn't be so much deviation from the reboot method to the chroot 
method that documenting it as a hint wouldn't be feasible, and if it 
comes to that, I volunteer to write and maintain the hint.
