Have you used fakeroot before?  That's exactly what it does, and it
seems to work fine.

fakeroot  works by replacing the file manipulation library
functions (chmod(2), stat(2) etc.) by ones  that  simulate
the  effect the real library functions would have had, had
the user really been root. These wrapper functions are  in
a  shared library /usr/lib/* which is loaded
through the LD_PRELOAD mechanism of  the  dynamic  loader.
