right. what you see in source.development is my unfinished merge. I
had been meaning to tell you that.... if you can clean up the
resulting mess, it will be great!
I know that today we are in a mess, but I think a little more work
should see web2c 7.3.4, TeXLive, teTeX, and the Omega source tree all
is an identical state. This will be REALLY GOOD!!!
