The old syntax style wasn't meant for mass production. It was a quick
'work-out' for us to see what's possible. While it generates great
profiles and alfs programs work well with it, it was never suited nicely
for expansion or to support complex 'weirdities' so we decided to
re-implement the syntax from scratch and this time keep scalability in
mind too for a change.

I have no comments on the syntax at the moment, i got a backlog of
emails here to work though and my main focus is on LFS at the moment, I
have an LFS-3.0 book to whip up in shape.
