So you'd just rather have a single lfsbook.xml file then?  If not then
what would you prefer.  I've been open to suggestions for ages on
precisely this structuring of the source files.  Why did you decide to
wait until (long) *after* I'd done the deed to raise your concerns? 
Still, it can always be changed again if that's what the rest of the
editors feel is required.  But at the moment they (and myself) have
nothing to compare it against.  D'ya wanna provide an alternative
suggestion so we can get the ball rolling on this?
