It's not naive, it's just not yet completely implemented.

The problem I have is figuring out where the forks are in the lh_* scripts.
The fork between debootstrap/cdebootstrap is easy to see, but take for
instance the bootloaders and linux-image, and which lh_binary_$image scripts
ddepend on which bootloaders. I'm sorry if I don't make much sense here,
but I am still browsing around the code, and not as familiar as you are with
it. I guess I still need more time to go through everything.
I was just thinking that a script called lh_binary_image that runs the for
loop across $L_B_Images and call the lh_bin_iso/hdd separately.

Not really, except a zaurus. I made a machine with dual p3's and 4 scsi
drives. That's the fastest disks I ever came across. The only way I know to
escape the disk bottleneck is to use tmpfs. I used to build my debian
packages in tmpfs in the past because it was so much quicker.

ok, I just subscribed.
