It should work both with IL2 and T1, both patterns should be loaded in
the format and babel should switch them according to the current
encoding. There is a new hook in babel for doing it and Johannes wrote
us that he has already included it in babel.dtx. It only needs to be
enabled in language.dat. If you have the conf file for converting the
patterns to IL2, it will make my experiments easier. I was able to do
it for TL2007.
