Not yet, afaik.  I know Neven plans on making nALFS support the official
syntax, thou he's been waiting for some proper docs and/or the 1.0
release :)

My fault in that regard, two weeks ago I had an accident with my laptop
and i've only managed to stay online for a few hours a day on a windows
box, annoying; But I just got one of my other boxes sent to me, gonna load
up a dist today and get LFS on her and get back to hacking at it.
