It is very nice to know a newer version of Tamil Omega will
be released soon that will work woth TeXLive.  I found the
problem with the old Tamil/malayalam packages were the placement
of the map files for the various Type I fonts.  It would be nice to
have newer versions (perhaps newer installation shell scripts)
made availab for all the three packages (i) Tamil Omega,
(ii) Malayalam Omega, and (iii) MalayalamTex 0.9.2.

My further wish list includes the availability of a new
Devanagari Omega package that would accept all those
beautiful fonts from the ISM (CDAC) CD.  The present version
of DevanagariTeX, though nice, cannot work with ISM fonts.
