Following up from your (individual) reply with the test case ...
I apologize for the unconscionable delay in replying.
The answer seems to be that both btxmac.tex and babel's plain.def define
"\@newcommand" (with the @).
I hope to get the go-ahead from Oren and make a new release of
btxmac+eplain in a few days to fix this by renaming the btxmac control
If you want to give it a try now, just change the two occurrences of
\@newcommand in eplain.tex to (for instance) \@btxnewcommand and remake
the format (mktexfmt eplain.fmt). Fingers crossed ...
P.S. So wish TeX had had real namespaces from the beginning. Oh well.
