Maybe not educational, but we need to draw a line between arguing on
"educational value only" and "expected base functionality".

sshd gets you out of a hole, you can build lfs remotely, reboot it,
and log in again remotely, continue building. If you dont have blfs
packages available you can scp them in.

just my $0.02, but I guess you'd expect people to know to setup
networking and build openssh if they intended to never go back to
the host OS...
