[To whom it may concern: I'm the Debian maintainer of ASCII pTeX
(actually, most of Japanese TeX-related) packages.  Sorry I didn't
reply your mail promptly -- I was away for a while, and busy to catch
things up.]

Well, so there are not much left to say.  Let me express my heartful
gratitude to you ;-)

Anyway, I think it's about the time to ask where the ASCII pTeX

mainline TeX source?
