Probably the best possible question you could have asked!
Now one for you. What known LFS goals and policies are we to reference?
I chose http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/cvs/prologue/audience.html
Now lets take a look.
Education = Depends..will the user learn more on his own by first using
static devices, or by learnig dynamic devices as taught in the book.
Compact/Minimalist = HELL NO! Another package.
Optimized = No. Another proggy running in the backround when a static
device would suffice.
And a couple of more questions....
So, now the question is wether education outweighs the other two goals
as I believe it does. If so, then does dynamic devices take away from
education in comparison to creating the soon outdate static devices?
While I would really like to see dynamic devices supported, the answer
clearly seems the opposite to me. I certainly hope this finally lays
the argument to rest.
