In nordic mythology Heimdal is the guardian of the rainbow bridge that leads 
to "Asgaard" the homestead of the Gods. Heimdal can see 100 days in every 
direction, sleeps lighter than a bird, and can hear the grass grow. This is 
in contrast to greek mythology where the guard dog to Hades could be diverted 
with cake, and beaten by Hercules. The dog, kerberos, was owned by Pluto. 
Nordic mythology is strongest in Iceland. Pluto and Iceland are cold, hence 
winter.txt. In other words, I didn't want to call it pie.txt because it 
touches on several things, and I didn't know what to name it.

For fewer false bug reports I think we're asking ppl to use LFS as the host 
system, newer the better. If you can build the cvs book as a host system it 
would help too.
