One thing to note is that changes like these should be reflected in
the omega and aleph sources as well -- there have been times where
omega builds would have broken.  But Omega and Aleph don't use tex.ch
directly, instead typically (but not always) it is com16bit.ch that
has to be changed.  Question remains who is responsible for keeping
these bits within reasonable distance of whatever I do to tex.ch.
(I've done it in past, but somewhat haphazardly; is there anyone who
ever bothers to double-check this stuff?)
