Yeah, that's the issue. I'm not sure if there is likely to be this sort 
of a conflict again in the future (IOW, specific and unusual cases in 
the LFS book that jhalfs needs to account for) but, if we can, we should 
endeavor to let LFS be and make jhalfs generally smarter and adaptable 
without actually hard-coding the cases into jhalfs. Now, how to actually 
do that is going to take some thought. ;)
