Another approach to supporting multiple annual versions of TeX Live is
our approach at Utah:


Once an annual release is official, we change internal symlinks 
so that commands

	source $prefix/skel/SYS.texlive.csh
	.      $prefix/skel/SYS.texlive.sh

in user acccount startup scripts point to the scripts for the new
version.  We support all years from 2003 to 2022, and the scripts
support many different CPU architectures and operating systems, and
those scripts are propagated to hundreds of systems in our test lab.
