True, but explanations would be very interesting indeed. Gerard needn't
be the one to do it, though. LFS is a fascinating enough project that
I'm sure someone else will jump in eventually and fill in the background
material. Even just going through the archives and summarizing the
discussions would be enlightening to many. It might even short-ciruit
the CRON thread (which I'm sorely tempted to jump into).
