Hey Guys -

Just throwing this out for comment - I know you're in the finishing 
stages for BLFS-6's release...but there's a few things I'd like to 
possibly see added in after that.  Let me know what you think:

Messaging software (irssi, xchat, gaim)
Fortune (utilized by xscreensaver)

Messaging software is something that BLFS has never addressed in it's 
history, and I think it would be a nice addition.  Fortune is utilized 
by some of the screensavers in xscreensaver to put random quotes on the 
screen, and gkrellm makes a very nice system monitoring daemon for a 
desktop system.

I know you guys are super busy, so I even volunteer to write these up in 
BLFS XML format and submit patches when the time comes.
