That's interesting Jeremy, but as a minimum, I wouldn't want to make the changes 
for LFS 6.4.  I don't think you are proposing that but I wanted to make it explicit.

My thought of the minimum version is that they are relatively arbitrary. 
They're old enough to catch most systems but are known to work.

Now we know more, but working with very old distros like RH 6.2 is not most 
user's focus.  After all, overcoming Linux 0.01 only requires a LiveCD.
