Not confused at all, at least to me.

Thomas said that now, having available jhalfs, look like the *LFS profiles for 
nALFS are becoming obsolete. The answer is that yes, the is no need to keep 
updated the profiles due that jhalfs can build the base system in a more 
book-way than nALFS with not much maintenance involved.

Of course, jhalfs can't do all the tasks requested for a full nALFS 
replacement, then a new alfs tool need to be developed to fit that requested 

The new alfs could to use or not jhalfs as a backend for some tasks, like to 
do by-the-book builds, but both are separate tools with different goals.
