It's so simple I'm surprised nobody had thought of it before. I like it,
I don't forsee any problems with it.

Somebody will bring up the point of doing something outside of chroot in
chapter 6, so let's nip that in the butt: this will be the exception.
The pro (the host system's umount script being able to unmount $LFS)
outweighs the con (of doing something outside of chroot in chapter 6).
