texmfstart texexec 

so, texmfstart is the progrma that starts a script in the tree; by using texmfstart i can make sure that i can keep up with changes in tds that would break things otherwise (as in the past) 

(apart from that, texmfstart can do things like conditional running, tree initialization - handy when you run more trees in parallel -, handle its own kpse search [either or not as service] which can be faster than the regular ways, etc)
