May I ask if "pwebmac" is destined to find its way into TeX Live in the foreseeable future ?

Supplementary question :  is it possible, in TEXMFLOCAL, to define "fuzzy_level" as zero for
this and all future TeX Live installations, and if so, in which file ?  I find the current
fuzzy-search behaviour more infuriating than useful (in fact, I never find it useful,
only infuriating).  Or could TeXdoc be enhanced to ask, Google-style, "Did you mean ... ?"
rather than just blindly assuming that I did ...
