I wrote a small perl backend for the profile.  
It was written in a very short time so there are a lots of things to be fixed,
but the main thing is -- it works (I successfully done Chapter 5).

The profile used is from CVS tree, but with some modifications (read the 
comments). I included only the first part of the it (< chroot).
Currently, I am going through the second part, which should be over soon.

You will need a Perl module called XML::Parser. It can be downloaded from:

For XML::Parser you need expat (the C library for parsing XML):

Sorry for dependencies.

I will be very happy if people try this. 
It's about time we start some coding. ;)

Please, tell me what you think. Thanks.
