[tex-live] Intentional deletions in texmf-dist/tex/plain/misc rather than move?

    Am curious to know if the SVN revision r33039 commenting that files are
    moved (see below), also intended to delete files/directories outright.

Yes.  (I'm impressed at your careful reading!)

    For example, texmf-dist/tex/plain/misc 

There was nothing left in it.  That was the whole goal I was aiming for :).

    and some of its contents (e.g., pdfcolor.tex) are now deleted and
    not moved.

pdfcolor.tex is the only one that is now gone, all others were moved
(idxmac.tex got omitted from last night's update by mistake, should be
back tonight).

When I looked at pdfcolor.tex, it is clearly an example document, not
something that someone would want to \input (much less \include), since
it redefines \makeheadline and \makefootline, among other things.
Therefore should not be in the runtime.  I will restore it to the pdftex
documentation, where it belonged in the first place, when I update that
later this year.

If you think there's a mistake somewhere in there, just let me know.
I didn't intend to actually affect anyone's documents.
