Yes, It happens to everyone.

A couple of comments/questions, forgive me if I've missed something but I've 
been out of touch for a while.

Has the syntax been finalized?  If not I had some ideas for changes... Last 
falll/winter I was playing with my own versions of the profiles and came up 
with some ideas to make them less bulky.

I say let everyone code up a frontend/backend in whatever language they like 
and let the best man/code win.  You can forever discuss the merits of one 
language over the other, just do it.  I was using my own simpler (but far 
less complete) perl fe/be before I dropped out of it for a while.  Once you 
actually start it's not brain surgery.

FYI, I would try and help support a C version of ALFS.  Only because that is 
what I am most comfortable with.  There is a lot less text processing than 
one may think here.  I believe the expat library does all the hard stuff.
