I'm using LFS and CLFS to build my graduation project, a compact router 
distro meant for simple LAN party administration.

The best part is knowing that, should something go wrong, I've 
documented every thing I've done beyond a base CLFS, so I can /very/ 
quickly rebuild the entire project up to this point if something were to 
go wrong. All it would take is ~75 SBUs for LFS and however many 
CLFS-embedded takes, plus the custom packages (10 or so) and I'd be up 
and running.
