Well it would be a pity if the 'blurring' between sysd/non-sysd that has
happened in lfs, crept in to blfs too.

Yes, I know you're talking about 'just' bootscripts ... for now, at least;
but we'll see how it goes - it seems to be a recurring factor around sysd
that it ever-pervades/interferes.

A good test would be, can one still auto-calc a dep-tree from the blfs xml
src, and switch on/off sysd and its dep-tree with a single yes/no parameter,
and auto-build the result. It's long been possible to do that kind of
thing with the xml src - and improving much in recent years re cleanness
of the deps-specs: would be ... 'strange' ... to jettison that (on the
b/lfs-project side, at least).

Expecting a 'bullish' attitude in response to such feedback, like for lfs:
but I think in this respect at least that we'd have different interpretations
of what 'bullshi' might mean ...  ;)  .

Btw, what was it decided you to 'get more involved' on the sysd side -
e.g. demand for teaching courses on the stuff?
