If we use an OS implementation we can add the above features (if they 
not already exist) and still release the modifications under OS too.

Currently, I don't have any high priority task related to LFS (Okay, 
there is the "news database syntax validation" thing, but I'm almost 
finishing it), so I'm interested on beginning the tests with it. 
Possibly, I will start with Slashcode: 1) It's Perl; 2) It's GPL; 3) 
Seems to be cool :)

As always, suggestions are welcome.
