Well, it *is* a note, but I take your point. It is unnecessarily
abrupt. I apologize.

Well, yes and no. It contains a method for breaking LFS. When/if
someone sits down to tackle the various outstanding problems in LFS,
this is something that they'll want to try. So the PR ought to be left
open so that person (which stands a good chance of being me) will be
able to find it.

If at that point it doesn't apply any more or turns out to depend on
setup details that aren't available, we can always close it then.

As much as it's nice to reduce the total PR count, it doesn't do us
any good in the long run to be too aggressive about it.
