BLFS has a paragraph explaining what random does. Are you going to
import that into LFS also or just put it into the bootscripts without
BTW, BLFS has sections on /etc/inputrc, bash startup files, and vimrc.
I personally can't forsee
a situation where a user would not want those too. Are you going to
move those to LFS too?
