I know all about that chore too. I have taken to "borrowing" from lfs-book to 
myself and my own profiles up-to-date when needed.

I'll have to check it out then.

My coding skills are quite rusty myself. The only programming I do anymore is 
almost exclusive Perl CGI for my web-based front-ends to databases and other 
such things (need something: Perl CGI it...it's portable though I'm 
considering porting some of it to QT so you don't require a web server 
running on every system to perform some basic system admin tasks).

Having that all said, if I can help out with code I'd do so but maybe it's 
best to provide pseudo-code and have an active nALFS maintainer do something 
with it (just so the coding styles don't clash or bugs are introduced due to 
cluelessness on my part).
