Good question. For TeX Live, and as I am packaging for Debian ATM, also
for Debian, what .ini files do you suggest?

Currently we have:
and the programs are named the same. 

Do you have a suggestion for those ini files which are not depending on
luatex-fonts.tex etc etc?

We could also change that to
	luatex.ini	-> pdf mode
	dviluatex.ini	-> dvi mode
etc but for lualatex I guess it should default to .dvi still, or?

Best wishes
