yes, indeed - i've read some of it.

Won't be done anywhere before Alindis 0.2, and after that, I'll perhaps
stick with a design similar to Debian.

But for LinuxFromScratch, this is a very interesting solution.  (But
there are many good possibilities to do pm somehow.)

Don't have these problems with Debian (if I can get it to work with its
own source code packages correctly 'till my deadline :( ).

But actually, I don't have the smallest idea which direction to go after
alindis 0.2 - there are at least as many possibilities as there are pm
solutions for lfs.

(Sorry for the tired response (-;.  It's late at night here and I'm
going to bed.)
