So the project is pdfTeX.

And the binary is pdftex (current beta has pdfetex)? Changing the
name of the binary back to pdftex will cause confusion, as now
(teTeX 3/TL2005) the binary used is pdfetex (pdfTeX is just a
symlink to pdfetex, changing the binary back to pdfTeX would need
the reversed link).
