For right now, the 5.1 book will use lfs-bootscripts-2.0.5 - the 2.0.6 
tree is the proposed package for BLFS, with the updated samba scripts 
included, and is proposed as a later release for BLFS purposes

As far as for the future, I think DJ is correct - we should work 
together to ensure everything fits properly, and checking for things 
like that.  See blfs-dev list for a proposal!
