Fixed that, the repository will be updated in half an hour.

I wanted to make sure the concept actually works first, this stuff
is somewhat tricky to get right because of .so-s depending on other

And I have some questions about the texlive texworks packages:

* what was the texworks version in texlive? The 0.2.3 release?

* 'texworks' contains only a readme file, but it also contains win32-
   specific postactions.

* 'texworks.win32' contains the binary, and some dlls + TeXWorks.exe
under tlpkg/texworks. Is that similar to the .so trick I used?

* 'texworks.win32' also contains a whole bunch of data files
for poppler as well as the manual/help, living under tlpkg/texworks.
Should I include those as well? If yes, would it not be better to
move those files to 'texworks' ?

Best wishes,
