There's also a file somewhere, which interweaves plain.tex w/ the 
matching material from _The TeXbook_ so as to turn plain.tex into a 
literate program (wonder how DEK forgot to do that ;), which while it 
kind of skirts the matter of the license for _The TeXbook_ source, _is_ 
kind of interesting to read.

(who has said file at home, but can't recall where he found it)
