Actually I have two probs with doing this.

1) If I post it, then I'm gonna have maintain it.  And answer queries on it.
And since most of the material came from Nic Dille's excellent research I'm
not competant to do that.  My competance is in using English to express
technical ideas.

2) I'm bored with it.  My [,B]LFS interests have moved on to applications
rather than base-build.

So, someone else is welcome to take it on, and I'll happily send them what I
did to date (plagarism is the most sincere form of flattery, after all),
but I won't post as author.
