o Now that working packages are available for several indian languages, 
   may I suggest to include these also, but separately?

o It would be better to keep these packages independent e.g.  under 
  "/usr/local/"  for network distribution or, if one wishes, in 
  personal home directory to insulate these from upgradation etc 
  of the main  tex package.

o Main tex configuration  should also have the default search path that 
   includes "/usr/local/"  and home directory.
  (Tex under redhat doesn't do so and one is at mercy of sys-admin to
    do this change.)

o  Is it possible for  tug-india to have its own full tex  pacakge that 
    would do justice to indian languages?
    (PCQuest or others may then be approached for distribution)
