I took it'd be a great idea. If the BLFS book should have the same version 
number at all times I'm not sure. It might work, but BLFS-5.0 would mean a 
significal change even though there might only be minor changes since the 
last version (pretending there was a BLFS-4.0). 

But on the other hand, if the versions are the same, the BLFS book gets more 
of an extension of the LFS book feel. Same version, same release dates, etc. 

Concretely, can you guys have BLFS-5.0 ready (or BLFS-4.1, not sure what I'll 
name the LFS book, probably has to be 5.0 because it's a major Glibc change 
although we just had a major version increase one version ago...at least 
we'll be catching up to Redhat, Mandrake et all a bit sooner this way) by the 
end of January? That's when I'm aiming for the next LFS book to be finished 
(maybe first week of February).
