[tex-live] latex<->etex on TL8

In web2c/fmtutil.cnf we have:
# Change "tex -> etex" and "latex.ini -> *latex.ini" to get an
# eTeX-2 enabled LaTeX format named latex. Or, don't change anything
# and use elatex which is just the same.
latex tex language.dat latex.ini
etex etex language.def *etex.ini
elatex etex language.dat *elatex.ini
but latex is now a link to etex (even on Win32, last binaries from
Fabrice). Can somebody guess the consequence? ;-)
fmtutil produces latex.fmt, but running latex tries to generate
the format, then gives an error.
What about existing local copies of fmtutil.cnf when upgrading
Switching latex to etex should be made more carefully.
