	Wow, you went and did it; great job!  Now, I'll have to start
updateing the ADG.

	Geez, so much to say now, and little time to write.  :(  I do
think it may be a good idea to add versioning to the <package> tag.
Maybe serial# style like with DNS masters and slaves?  Best maybe in
numrical date/time format:  YYYYMMDDhhmm?  I also like the <execute>
tag, nice and intuative.  This would go along with trying to make a
separate profile for each package and then a "master" profile to tye
them all together if people still think this is a good idea...

	Right now I blew away my LFS and debian here at home.  I've
gotton ahold of MDK 8.1 , just to test out the LFS competition and then
will promptly nALFS the system!  :)  More comments to come.
