I suppose it's obvious by now that I didn't intend to do so. Just a time 
constraint. I've only finished some large projects for work last Thursday 
that finally give me a lot more free time for the next forseeable future. 
After the release of LFS-4.1 around Monday, I'll have a look at that XML 
stuff and decide if that'll happen first, or get some work on the book done 
first. Both are important to me, I just have to decide which one is slightly 
more important.
