sure, but what always puzzled me is the close connection between a texmf
tree and binaries;
The fmt files will still embed pool checksums (among other things) so
can't be arbitrarily swapped around with different binaries. Other than
that, I think it would basically work to use a binary from one release
and a tree from another, not that I've ever tried it (or see much reason
to). Obviously 99% of the macros are independent of the particular
this may have changed now that we no longer have a
dependency (i.e. no pool file any more)
Indeed, that is a good advance.
while maybe we can drop part of that history (say that all pascal
sources are turned into c ... that would simplify things, wouldn't it?)
It sure would, but knuth's tex & mf, plus omega and aleph will never be
converted. So as long as we distribute Knuth's tex ...
BTW, do you think aleph can become a symlink to luatex?!
