Traditionally we've used sed commands in LFS (nice and portable!) but
I'm willing to listen.  Personally I prefer sed but that's because I
don't code perl at all (I'll get around to learning it eventually..)
Thanks for passing this stuff on to the maintainer for us and it would
definately be appreciated if you'd keep us in touch with developments.

Comments on the sed vs perl issue?
