No problem. But that's why I asked (where you got Tw from, not what you
had for breakfast ;)).

As always, that depends. But TL'11 (just released a few days ago)
includes the latest stable release of Tw (0.4.3), and the fact that
TL'10 included 0.4.0 suggests that you also get more or less regular
updates that way. So unless you are comfortable with watching the
progress of Tw yourself, or you want to always have the latest changes
and features (and bugs ;)), you should probably be fine with using the
TL version. It just means you need to move the shortcuts.ini file to the
folder mentioned above (and live with the fact that this "resources"
folder is different than the "default" one).
Also, _if_ you have any other version of Tw, I suggest removing it to
avoid confusion.
