Excellent point. For some reason, I didn't think about when LFS did it.
Maybe means the argument is a weak one, or I was overloaded then, or ...

Anyway, my mood today  ;)  seems focused on the edu side. Because I'm
not n00b, I do like the convenience. But I'm willing to forego that if
overall view would prefer keeping all in the book(s). Or not.
