That could be solved easy, if wanted.

When a LFS-x.y version is ready to release, just create a temporally 
&blfs-root;view/x.y symlink pointing to &blfs-root;view/svn and fix the to be 
created blfs-version entitie.

In this way, the links in LFS-x.y always will point to the corresponding 
BLFS-x.y book, but until that BLFS-x.y book is released the pages showed will 
be from BLFS-SVN (or the related BLFS branch, in one is created and the 
symlink is readjusted to point to that branch).
