I am still completely confused as to why you keep saying that it is not 
the second version of anything.  What am I missing that you guys are 
talking about on IRC that is not making it to the list?  The SRS makes 
it very clear that nALFS2 (as it is called there) is the logical 
progression of the tool, hence the 2 in its name.  What is all this 
stuff about not using any code and starting from scratch and using what 
ever moongoo is.  AFAICT moongoo is a POC of using the book as profile 
and nothing more.  I am not interested in the simple syntax to describe 
the build commands or anything else that is being concocted in there.

Someone either needs to edit the SRS from scratch to get this stuff in 
there so we can talk about it, or quit saying anything about it.
