Please don't omit BLFS from the equation.

+1, assuming the following:

1) At least one of DJ and Dan agrees.
2) This proposal gets implemented shortly after 2006-06-02.
3) The "contrib" directory for unofficial stuff (like the persistent CD symlinks 
from Debian) is allowed.
4) Some form of documentation notes for BLFS is agreed upon (e.g., how to keep 
proposed rules for group membership that are not part of base LFS installation, 
e.g., "audio").
