Sorry for answering after such a long time. I think that removing
vlna.exe will be sad for Czech and Slovak users. This program inserts
nonbreakable spaces after nonsylabic prepositions. Linux users are
able to comple it from sources, most Windows users are not able to
compile it. A few months ago t was decided to provide vlna executables
for all platforms. In the meantime I found a few minutes to finish
documentation and add a license to encxvlna, which is its
implementation in encTeX, and upload it to CTAN.
