Agreed, sorry Manuel, I was too quick to forward that.

Sorry, who cares? If you want that, use plain tex. Yes that is life 
even in the TeX World. You probably can process all documents even

As said, only because someone suggested to you to use internal
macros does not mean it is the right way.

I am closing this bug.

Best wishes
