Chroot capabilities in sshd

I just looked over the sshd 4.9 release notes, and came across this gem:

* Added chroot(2) support for sshd(8), controlled by a new option
   "ChrootDirectory". Please refer to sshd_config(5) for details, and
   please use this feature carefully. (bz#177 bz#1352)

This is awesome, and should negate the need to use pam_chroot! Nice!
