I support this idea. I know very little in the way of script programming and 
many of the boot scripts are not clear to me.

I don't expect LFS to teach me script programming, but I would hope the 
scripts would be easy enough to figure out knowing only basic programming 

Having said that, the ones I have looked at were not extremely difficult to 
puzzle out. But if it can be done in a clearer way, with plenty of comments 
to help explain things, that can only be a good thing.

Maybe it would be helpful to add more detail in the book regarding the boot 
scripts encouraging readers to become familiar with the programming style and 
how the various scripts relate to each other as well.

Or maybe just a pointer to a good reference in boot script programming (-;

Just my thoughts on the subject.
