Hi Robert.

Can you please explain me what is the evidence to say presumptively no 
one needs it?

It goes against the spirit of LFS? So? Not all changes are negative.

Anyway the hash style code may be found in current svn FSF binutils 
version, putting the hash style way in a hint is pretty useless because 
it is an official feature.

I would like to say clearly mine are not critics or whatever, only 
simple thoughts.
