What is it you are going to have to do to lfs.xsl?  I actually think your
idea proposed on lfs-book was just fine. Especially since, in this case, we
are only talking about two packages. Reason I am asking about the xsl file
is because I am wondering if we are going down a road which requires more
tweaking and customization than just getting the data from the book.
