How can Rock linux be educational? 
Why not try Gentoo Linux, and check their ebuild system, or Sorcerer
Linux and thier spells, but if you want to really follow a distribution
in the making join #archlinux @Openprojects.net its 0.2 now, you can use
it a source distro as in (LFS,RL,SGL,...) or as a binary distro, has the
famous PACMAN as the package-manager that behaves like an apt-get! and
nice bash code to look at.

other than that! there is an XML+PERL+(a bit of RUBY)+Administartion
project that have forked form ALFS,one of thier profiles is making an
LFS system, its still in its infancy, which makes it more educational.
