Yes, I rambled on about it, but in the end I agree with you.   Alex
makes a good point about not giving too much scope for getting it wrong
- learners need to succeed to be encouraged.

Frankly, I think LFS is just about right - which is one reason that
there isn't much going on ;-)  And so I get bored with it :-(

What I need is something it can't handle, like Udev for several months a
year ago, or a new booting scheme...
