A possible direction for nALFS

hi,
has anyone considered a dry-run function yet?
when i built my first nALFS system, i would have liked an output to textfile only (for debugging). one could use the logfiles also, echoing the actual commands that nALFS issued.

--update-profiles discussion:
as increasingly more people have flatrates, leeching the sources-tarball via bittorrent and emule sure becomes more popular. one could add the alfs-profiles to that tarball. it would not gain that much weight.
extra measures would have to be taken to ensure the authenticity of the tarball to prevent manipulation, though. (md5sum on homepage) 

greetings,
oliver
