    Although I like to have original config files somehow 
    proteted, must agree, that texmf-var should be editable. 

I agree, of course.  And, it would be very nice if there was a simple
check box during the installation to allow the user to switch between
letter and a4 paper.  It is undesirable for users to have to figure out
all the config files to edit to do this -- there are a bunch.  (And it
has to happen before any .fmt's are made, too.)
