They should not be removed, if we do that, then we loose all the
information those lists have, all the posts, etc...

There isn't.. well apart from doing a perldoc ALFS.pm, iirc

As for the merits of the different languages LFS could be implemented
it, i think we all agreed that any language could be used.

We agreed that the idea of a multiple frontend/backend/ipc/whatever
isn't needed at this point.
So all an ALFS implementation needs todo is parse the XML and do the
work, nothing fancy.

Well.. that's just stuff users can add in the profile, a simple text
dumb to a file, not something we should be targetting, imo.

That isn't the point ;)
ALFS wont only be installed from a CD, one could download and install it
manually, it can be a pain in the ass having to install an xml parser
and four perl packages ;)
