Hello, says:

> Without patches and/or
installing software beyond BLFS, in UTF-8 based locales you will not be able to
do such basic tasks as printing plain-text files from the command line,
recording Windows-readable CDs with filenames containing non-ASCII characters,
viewing ID3v1 tags in MP3 files and so on.

Since PAPS and Audacious Media Player are now in BLFS, please remove the 
"printing plain-text files from the command line" and "viewing ID3v1 tags in MP3 
files" parts. Since work is in progress to add patches to mkisofs, you may even 
want to remove the whole sentence.
