jhalfs is useful as a quick way to build and test the current version of 
LFS. It parses and runs the commands straight from the book so there's 
no profiles to maintain. If the alfs client/server system will also 
eventually do the same thing then there wouldn't be much need for jhalfs 
anymore. But that seems a ways off yet. In the meantime I think jhalfs 
will see some active development.
