base is for macro packages, isn't it? maybe


in the case of specific patterns for context + omega, i'd put them in

texmf/tex/context/patterns (/omega)

unless those omega patterns are really generic (never seen them)

anyhow, as long as anthomega is able to locate them anything is ok

maybe specific otp related thingies?

indeed, actually, if antomega is something very special, why not consider it a macro package in itself (if it borrows from oter packages, fine, but that not uncommon i think)  

texmf/tex/antomega/base (and if needed: texmf/tex/antomega/patterns) 

things; sounds best to me since then the author is free/responsible for what comes under it; antomega as subpath can never conflict with future omega then also add a progname 'antomega' entry in the cnf file so that it comes with its own input path:

the more i think of it ... it's not an engine issue, more a macro package issue; it actually has nothing to do with engines (esp because it probbably also works ok with aleph which is another engine -)
