Hi Norbert,

I just had a look at your patch (ignoring all the auto stuff that will
be or already is replaced by *.ac and *.am fragments).  The code changes are
indeed rather limited, and can easily be made optional via a -D<something>
and/or #define's supplied by the TL build system.

I suppose the changes required for luatex will have a similar size.
