Agreed. Let's get those listed. We need to finalize on the feature set

One thing that Kevin mentioned, which I forgot to bring up again, is 
that it's important for the direction of this new tool that we have 
clearly in mind what the LFS community as a whole wants out of it.  If 
it's felt that this is already understood, fine, let's get moving on 
development. If not, or if the new features proposed spark new interest 
in what ALFS should be able to accomplish, now's the time to speak up.
