If I understand the whole discussion, we need the _same_ source/
(not source.development/) for including on CDs/DVD and for remaking
all binaries. Otherwise, we cannot distribute old source/ tarball
which is completelly different from the current state.

BTW, current win32 tex is Web2c 7.4.5 but for Linux it is 7.5.2

I hope that after last changes to pdftex source.development can
be promoted to source, then binaries for all platforms should be
rebuit again _from_ source/ for the release of TL mastered by Lehmans.
