Thanks, that sounds nice. Bad news is that I've found that Miktex
doesn't support any of these variables, so a different method to find
the root directory must be used. I am thinking about using
kpse.find_file to locate some file in a known location, but what if a
user has a custom version of such file in his TEXMFHOME? It seems that
there is no cross-platform stable way to find the TeX distro root?
Maybe it will be easier to replace code in Xtpipes by Lua filters, I
wanted to do that sometimes anyway.
