your suggestion to use antomega's hyphen.cfg for lambda might be right,
but users of TeX Live might want to use the original version (even
though this might seem to be nonsense in your eyes: there was a life
before antomega and people might want to continue to typeset their
old documents).

I don't technically understand all the details behind your arguments,
but my suggestion allows people to use both approaches.

I was trying to help getting your package into TeX Live which has a
structure conforming to TDS-1.1 *now*. The paths that I have suggested
areconforming to this. If this is nonsense to you, I am happy to stop
contributing to this discussion.

You seem to draw a wrong conclusion. tex// is *always* searched.

So, what? They *are* accessible to any omega-based format...

And, if some file is hidden by something in e.g. tex/generic, one
can always give tex/antomega// a higher precedence by adjusting the
TEXINPUTS setting.

Good luck with your package!
