Hi Herbert,

> Could you substitute TEXMFHOME for TEXMFLOCAL above? Can that variable actually be a path or only a single directory.

Sure enough. But if you mess around then many things can break.

But if for example your users have their home directories in ~/texlib
(which we had in our department for long time), a simple
   tlmgr conf texmf TEXMFHOME '~/texlive'
is enough.

And yes, TEXMFHOME can be any proper kpathsea path expression, like
(just tried it and it works)
