The install root feature will essentially let you specify some location to
cast spells into, say /opt/smgl-i386. Just configure sorcery to use this
location, then start casting spells. With the correct options set, the
spells you cast will be installed relative to /opt/smgl-i386, complete
with accurate sorcery state information.
By switching around a few options in sorcery, you could also cast into
/opt/isoroot-i386, but this time, the sorcery state information is stored
elsewhere, keeping the iso free of unnecessary crud.
Just some examples of how it could be used when finished.
(thanks Andrew for taking the install root stuff on :-)
