Help is always appreciated. :)

If it's security related, first post here for comment, then to patches
after any possible discussion. If it's not security related, send to
blfs-support for comment, then to patches (again after discussion). At
least, that's the way I do it. Some post straight to patches and that
seems to be ok, but I prefer to hear arguments/comments first. To avoid
over working the patches guys with redunancy.

Realize, though, that that isn't really a security patch, but I could
see how some think it would be. Post it here, just in case we decide to
use it.

That's an old version.

That's purely a user preference. Post it to blfs-support.

Also, prior to posting a patch, please read
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/patches/submit.html to ensure you are
properly formatting your patches.

Thanks. :)
