e-TeX 2.2 is the official release to go with TeX 3.141592.  Nothing
new is in there, just fixes and some cleanup.  However, the current
rework has extended into pdf*tex, which means that "just" going back
to the original 2.1 sources (if that is considered desirable) will
involve some additional work.

e-TeX-wise, we should have a stable intermediate state early this

In the mean time, is there anything that _has_ to go in?
