Long live pureLFS!

When I was first introduced to CLFS it was indicated that some people 
indeed anticipated that, eventually, the cross method would become The 
Book.  I had a few months to look at it before the last bombshell 
completely took out my base (think the first release of Red Alert).  I 
didn't see anything, from a user's perspective, so extraordinarily 
advanced in it that made me think that it wouldn't become The Book.

I can somewhat see how the CLFS method may be a bit harder on the devs to 
maintain but, if everything does finally merge together again, then it'll 
smooth itself out over time.
