So Werner's plan would work well, then. We would
have new patterns, which could be augmented

As I said to Phil last week, I personally think that
the TeX system's much vaunted repeatability (every line break
from a decade ago will be the same now) is not
really very interesting. If you want that stability, don't
upgrade your patterns...
