I'm still trying to get to the bottom of this, and wanted
to look in TeX.web to see how DEK had implemented DVI commenting
in TeX, but was very surprised to find no instance of TeX.web
in my TeX Live (2009) distribution; is this an accidental
(albeit very regrettable) oversight, or an intentional omission ?
