it would also be possible to go the other way round and
have TeXworks auto-detect TL.

What I think is important is:
1) someone installing TeX Live in the standard way also gets TeXworks.
This is clearly for the TL side, and we will take care of it, one way
2) the resulting TeXworks configuration is reasonable and does not need
the user to do anything to start using TeX(works).
3) if the user wants to override something, (1) they can do so without
having to copy other settings, and (2) their personal configuration
will survive both TW and TL updates.
This is why Norbert and I started down the path of having "cascading"
configuration files. But it's the result that's important, not the
Can anyone who knows more about TW advise about #2 and #3?
Jonathan, are you there :)?
