I'm pretty new to LFS/BLFS myself, and so far, I like what I see.  I
agree it's not perfect - what is?  I believe in evolution, not
revolution, and think the only way to make things better is to chip in.
Every little bit helps.  A journey of a thousand miles starts with a
single step, as the saying goes.  If you're familiar with udev and
hotplug, perhaps you could contribute some know-how in that regard?
I've played with udev briefly, but never acquired fluency.  I, for one,
would certainly appreciate any advice, pointers, tips, etc.
