It's in my head and i came up with the name, I think (that I'm not even sure 
of anymore).

Yeah lots of plans, not lots of time to actually develop it.  There's always 
something coming in it's way. I had plans starting InfoSys after LFS book was 
matured more (around a month ago) but then ALFS kicked of and i needed to 
concentrate on that (roadmap, white paper, more stuff of that nature).

But it will come, it will be part of ALFS (profile wise) so it won't be 
vapourware for much longer
