    I agree m-pictex.mkii could be copied but why was this being used at all?

Hans pointed out the same thing.

    just ship m-pictex.sty with a one with a one line
    \RequirePackage{pictex} for compatibility

Makes sense, but it's in the tex/latex/context/ppchtex directory, and
the files there haven't changed since 2004 (mtimes
notwithstanding). It's part of the ConTeXt
(tex/latex/context/ppchtex), so I don't think I should change it in TL.

Clearly Hans does not care about such LaTeX files :), so who maintains
them and can update them? Mojca, any idea?
