You've just described exactly the aims of the myOS project.
I see ALFS as being basically something where you have a profile, and tell it to
"GO", and it'll give you a full ALFS system with little further intervention.
myOS, on the other hand, is intended to be a "distribution"... ie, it'll give the
user options, options, and more options.

for myOS, we are intending to provide a cd-bootable binary image for the
bootstrap. This seems to be the easiest way to solve all the compatibility
