extension to <link> ?

Hello,

I just found what I think to be a bug
in the BLFS book, that when configuring 
KDE, a command 

ln -sf /opt/kde-3.0.5a /opt/kde

should in fact be

ln -sfn /opt/kde-3.0.5a /opt/kde

As the option no-dereference is not supported 
by <link>, I proposes to add it, so that we could write:

<link>
    <option>force</option>
    <option>no-dereference</option>
    <target>/opt/kde-3.0.5a</target>
    <name>/opt/kde</name>
</link>


instead of the ugly

<execute command="ln -sfn /opt/kde-3.0.5a /opt/kde"/>


Does the ALFS community agree ?
