Thanks. I was curious more to the philosophy rather than the mechanics (changed the subject to match).
It should be straight-forward enough to rename plain.tex to something else and then use that --- I'm just surprised that it isn't plain.web as a source file (I seem to recall that at some point someone published a literate program version of it, interweaving it w/ the text from _The TeXbook_, but that would run afoul of the copyright / license).
(I know there isn't a royal road, but I'm surprised there are so many obstacles)
