That will change a few things, I imagine.

This seems to be a solo effort on your part, Robert. May I set before
you the warning example of Don Quixote

"Due to an excess of reading his brains dried up and he lost the use of
his reason" :-). 

Where is the HLFS development _TEAM_ in this? If there's things people
can usefully do, throw them out to us. Those who know what they're doing
will probably help the effort along.
        With Best Regards,
