Sorry for being unclear - of course I know what tlmgr is.  I meant to
ask what "tlmgr paper letter" does.

Ah, thank you.  Should texconfig start configuring context's paper
default, too?  

What are your long-term plans?  Is it planned to let tlmgr replace
texconfig once in the future?  Or will texconfig continue to be present?
What's the status in Windows?  I guess cmd.exe might not be able to run
texconfig - should it be reimplemented in luatex?
