I cannot say much about your first point, I have not heard of this 
issue.  Has a ticket been submitted?  Most issues I see are worked on 
very quickly.

As for the second point, it is true that CLFS, with the many arches and 
32/64/multilib and keeping with XML is more complex, but the team is 
very open to comments and feedback.  If there was a better method to 
code they would be gladly heard.

This topic though is about LFS, not CLFS XML.  Even if LFS must 
re-invent the wheel, surely contacting those who have already invented 
it would be of some benefit?  Even just emailing the list, or one of the 
developers, or being in IRC pinging us with questions, would involve 
help unite efforts and save valuable time.
