Just another data point on the plain TeX and pgf issue: it doesn't
seem to like miniltx very much.

A file that starts with

\input miniltx
\input tikz.tex

causes the following whinage:

% pdftex _TZ_10520-jdiamond-nb-acadiau-ca.tex
This is pdfeTeX, Version 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4)
Runaway definition?
! Forbidden control sequence found while scanning definition of \XKV at define@boo
<inserted text> 
<to be read again> 
l.340   \expandafter\newif
                          \csname if\XKV at header#1\endcsname

That is the following \def in xkeyval.tex:

\def\XKV at define@boolkey#1{%
  \expandafter\newif\csname if\XKV at header#1\endcsname       % <- line 340
  \expandafter\edef\csname\XKV at header#1\endcsname##1%
    {\noexpand\XKV at setbool{\XKV at header#1}{##1}}%
  \@ifnextchar[{\XKV at d@fine at boolkey{#1}}{}%

Anyone see what the problem is?
