Hmmmm.... I didn't even see that angle. :) The picture in my head at the
time of writing was an endaround of all the hard work and testing which
could likely produce an inferior LFS leaving the project open to more
unspecified criticism.

I guess I'll take advice from people who know what they are doing, and
try to see all the angles next time. :)

to but himself.  The Labour of his Body, and the Work of his Hands, we
may say, are properly his. .... The great and chief end therefore, of
Mens uniting into Commonwealths, and putting themselves under
Government, is the Preservation of their Property.
