Yes, that's basically what the proposal is. Except with one major difference
-- the LFS book must take a default stand, and that stand is to apply the
patch. Leaving it optional will most certainly lead to grief. We cannot
leave that avenue open. But I suppose we could word it in such a way where
the consequences of not patching are clear.
