The only other alternative I can think of is to mount ~/Documents inside
the chroot. I'm not really keen about that though, because if you (or
sugar-build) accidentally deleted the chroot with ~/Documents mounted, you
would also delete it's content from the host system... I'm not sure if
there is a way around that, I think it's also the reason I decided to mount
only sugar-build instead of the whole user home...
