General questions about LFS

I'm actually in the middle of the first LFS book, somwhere at the beginning of
chapter 6. I appreciate the quality of the doc: everything is well explained,
and I just have to follow the book.
Just out of curiousity...
1) LFS/BLFS... is it just a "learning distro"... or is there a way to use it
as a full-blown everyday distro? E. g. write a few scripts to automate the
install process, which would result in something similar to Gentoo Linux
(minus the "can't emerge" and similar hassle:oD)? I don't mind if the install
process takes two days (to compile everything on an old Pentium II), as long
as the result is rock-solid. I *think* so, but I'd rather ask people who have
gotten more into it.
2) What's the release cycle of stable LFS/BLFS (roughly)? I'm rather
suspicious of bleeding edge (since I use GNU/Linux for everyday work), but
I'd hate to wait for 3-4 years (like Debian stable).
My (rough) idea for the future: put together two different versions of LFS
according to my needs. One for server (without X), one for full-blown
desktop. That possible?
