    it works as designed. 

Yes, I read that.  I should have said: "seems like a bug in the design".


    We *do* want the second, not the first. 

I'm not sure I agree, but I suppose it's moot.

    I think that my text is ok for the next version of TL, but not for TL2003.

1) So, is there or is there not a bug in TL 2003 regarding this stuff?
I thought Hans' original msg was about TL03, not 04.

2) It seems painful to change the paths out from under the locals
   without any warning.  We can't expect random sysadmins to read or
   care about the TDS.
   Can we give them a year, that is, we make the 04 release with both
   the old and new paths, and in the documentation say "hey, next year
   there's only going to be new paths, so change your local files now"?
   That way at least there is a chance for a smooth changeover.
