Thanks Olaf, thanks Karl. It seems to me I don't have much to 
with the Aleph and Omega base ... the changes are of three 

* (minor) TEX_(POOL|ENGINE)_NAME changed to TEXMF_\1_NAME

This is already implemented in Aleph, it seems.

* ML-TeX and enc-TeX related stuff, plus dumping and undumping 
of TCX files

I don't really think these have any meaning for Omega and 
Aleph, since I doubt those TeX extension are compatible with it

* spaces in filename

I just noticed that most of the code added to tex.ch is already 
present in the "w32" changefiles for Omega, which if I'm not 
mistaked is the set of fpTeX-specific changes. Looks like I'll 
just have to move it to all platforms.
