I understand from another discussion that kpathsea is getting download
capabilities. I do not recall reading discussions on that on this list.
Has it been discussed/described on another list so that I can have a look?

The reason is that the Mac TeX working group is talking with Apple about a
small chance of including TeX by default on the next Mac OS release, but
we would have to investigate any instrument that keeps the initial
distribution small. As someone who has implemented download strategies
(and knows some of the caveats) over the last years, I might be able to
contribute, maybe.
