that was indeed what i had in mind, a transition year: on tl2004 everything 
in the new structure but the cnf still a bit more tolerant; i can even 
imagine that we then announce (also in the journals) that tl2005 will be 
the big clean up [maybe even more things in the cnf file can be simplified 
and/or more new things in tds are on their way]

(i'm in the middle of a migration to the new tds and esp with multiple 
machines and multiple trees on machines it's a tricky process (i also need 
to regenerate font metrics because small differences in encoding vectors on 
different paths etc now become more significant since everything is shared 
/ merged))
