I read somewhere that the private keys in one's wallet are not needed for generating blocks with that wallet; that only the public keys are needed.  Is there a way I can cut out the private keys from a copy of my wallet and still run bitcoind for mining?  Would I have to edit the source for bitcoind to do this?

The goal is to create a solo miner such that a hacker with root access is unable to spend the mined coins.
