Ooooh, that sounds good.  I like a challenge.  I'll take that one on.  It
will take me some time probably as I do this and LFS in my off time during
lunch and at home after work.  I have recompiled the kernel a bunch of
times, so I think I can handle this.  Go ahead and stick it in Bugzilla and
assign to me.  Let me know what you want first, how much detail, etc so I
can get started.  I don't know your timeline for v1.0, so let me know what
is most important to you and i'll get it to you by cut off time.  Depending
on what you plan for v1.0, I may be able to get the whole thing done in
