Not having leisure (who knows what's that?;-)
...20030415-live.iso doesn't contain install scripts, README, etc.
(the layout is quite OK, more notes later, if the time permits)
...20030415.iso has only bin/win32/TeXsetup.exe, no other 
platform/binaries and where is the main texmf/ ?
I cannot see that mounting iso as -t iso9660 -o loop

It is good idea keeping tpm/ tree outside texmf/ so every
version can follow it (as well as renamed packages->package, etc.)
Fabrice, could TeXSetup be adapted to that convention?
