I'm using them exclusively since TL pretest came out and they seem to
be working without any problem (but I have installed TL from a script,
not from MacTeX since I didn't want to download gigabytes just for

(Other users of ConTeXt distribution are also using the basic binaries
from TeX Live and there has been no error report so far. Well, we
