If we fake times in our fake stat then fake futimes makes sense. But chown and chmod make little sense to me - only the current process can access the scalar so current UID is owner (and can't exec it).
We could accept the calls and set errno to nearest code that made sense, or perhaps just set the mode so that fake stat saw it.
Have we missed any more fd related calls? If there anything else that we can do to filehandles via perl interface that we missed?

I've written Business-USPS-WebTools to interact with the US Postal Service's Web Tools. This isn't screen scraping; it's a real web service officially offered by the USPS. So far I've only done the Address Information services: Address Standardization, Zip Code Lookup, and City/State Lookup. I didn't use any of the XML modules or anything other yucky things. The requests and responses are very small, and the other side doesn't understand real XML anyway.
