I am still not happy with that renaming. At the moment, I am
merging Aleph into luatex. Surely you do not expect me to have
\pdfpardir , \pdfocplist etc., so why would there be a pdf
prefix for non-pdf related new primitives? (I know we have
discussed this before, but ...)

Other then that:  thanks for the new beta. I will have a look
at the obsdcompat library asap.
