[tex-live] mysterious mpost problem

    - A partial solution is to always require the -progname for tex, mf,
      mpost if a different progname than the name of the program is
      desired.  This is easy to implement, though it may break backward

You mean, no longer try to infer the progname from -mem=foo?

I don't see an overwhelming reason to break compatibility in this
respect, so, all other things being equal, let's not.  Documenting the
need for -progname when in doubt seems sufficient?
