I can only support Sebastian's statement: "This is a serious set
of changes!". So, please, everybody is welcome to check the new
organization (esp. in texmf/tex; this is where I had most doubts about
correct placement for the new files, especially from the omega tree).

I'll happily do this (not right now, but soon). Maybe, we can get an
update for pdftex in time (which helps with cleaning up TEXINPUTS for
pdftex based formats). The changes to pdftex are just a few lines,
but I want that Martin approves what I plan to do.
