you should try not to say the phrase "chroot jail" because it's either
redundant or contradictory.

chroot(2) is the standard unix method, whereas jail(2) is a freebsd
invention that (i believe) similar to chroot(2) in some ways, but also
very different.

say chroot if you mean chroot, and say jail if you mean jail.
