For example?

Indeed indeed, in the current tlpretest installation of mine
I also have:

	relocated 1

	relocated 0

while in the tlpretest tlpdb itself I have:
	relocated 1

	relocated 1

THat is interesting... I have to investigate this. 

My *GUESS* is that packages that have bene added *LATER* via tlmgr
have *no* relocated entry (as it does not make sense for them),
and packages that were installed during install-tl have relocated 1.

I need to invest, thanks for pointing me at that.

Yes. That is the only meaning.

Yes indeed.

$ tlmgr search --file tabularx.sty

Maybe, yes, maybe merge the "search" into "info" .... need to think.
