One and half could be enough?

Yes, and that is what need be evaluated: how many complicated could be to move 
on the bash code to a open framework plugins-friendly in front of porting the 
current and future planned features to a binary solution.

I'm not good writing specs. IMHO, the new implementation must have all 
features found in jhalfs-2.x but coded in a way that further systems 
customizations, support for LFS-alike systems,  and features enhancement 
could be achieved by adding plugins on top of the base code.

If that can be made using bash, call it jhalfs-3.x. If decided that is better 
to use a compilable language based on the work and development done from 
George M., then call it alfs-1.x,  trying to implement also that 
not-yet-supported features found in the "alfs Software Requirements 
Specification" specs.

I any case, jhalfs-2.x need be maintained and keeped in a production-ready 
form until have a new tool able to replace it.
