Hm, strange. There's a texworks directory in Master/tlpkg/, it contains
a windows binary, some dll's and data. But there don't seem to be
sources in Build/.

I just found on the pretest information page in the section about
changes in TL 2009:

- The TeXworks front end is included on Windows. It will also be
  included in MacTeX. We hope to offer it for separate download on other

This means it seems it is *not* included in Unix builds; I have no idea
where the sources have gone.

Can you point us to an older list discussion why TeXworks can't or
shouldn't be included in TL 2009?
