    I just zapped Knuth's books when Thomas told me they were not allowed
    to be distributed

Really?  It's been in tex distributions forever.  It was included on the
tapes from UW, for instance.  And it's on CTAN.  Why shouldn't it be on TL?

I don't see that the copyright precludes unchanged distribution.
