This was discussed _extensivily_ on this mailing-list not too long ago.
(ok maybe a few months ago :)

The LFS InfoSys is what your will interface with a MySQL
database and PHP (right? that was the "preferred choice") allthough it's
nothing has been done yet (Gerard will speak up) that i know of, minus
whatever Gerard was working on.....

Have patience and as Simon is now maintaning the LFS-Hints you can
always rewrite them into hints and let Simon know...

Anyways, as always if your interested just speak up...
