(I'm cross-posting this followup to as lfs.hints is not a discussion

So, such a change should be reflected in hint format as well... Again, I
think of the dialup folks...

I propose having an

I don't think I should elaborate on its purpose... Now it's up to you to
decide whether you like this idea or not.
