Nice thread you started off there Matthias.

A long time ago I've stated myself that I'm not happy what the LFS book as-is 
turned into. Slowly extra tidbits of info slipped in which seemed like good 
ideas at the time. But now the accumulated result is a very dumbed down book 
and I agree with most of you people that some things should just be removed. 
We are not trying to write a book within a book. There are better resources 
that teach you how to do certain things (like the mentioned linux user's 
guide and the sotware building howto).

I'm all for reverting the lfs-book back to its intended state: a guide for 
intermediate to advanced Linux users.

And it seems the time has arived to start working on this transformation 
(after lfs-4 of course, there's no way to do it properly in a short time).
