I remember that with BLFS.  I was not under the impression that LFS has 
that same problem.  If your thought is the case and we cannot get all to 
agree, then I would suggest we pull it completely from their site.  We 
still have SF and FM pages that we can keep up to date that are 
noticeable by many.  I am not a big fan of having old stuff like that 
hanging out there.
