when the simplication to 'fmt' was discusses, the idea was that the distinction 
would be achieved by using an engine subpath


unfortunately tetex does not follow the tds recommendation in this.

however, texexec supports this, either by

   texexec --engine

or by an entry in the ini file, e.g.

   for tetex set UseEnginePath to true
