A reasonable plan might be:

(A) Disect TL's *-w2c.ch and factor out CWEBBIN's *-ansi.ch. That's the
obvious connection point between the two sets of patches with the most

(B) Move CWB's *-output.ch from last in line to next to *-extensions.ch
and look what's useful/appropriate for TL; the *-translation.ch and
*-memory.ch stuff most likely is not.

I'll try to study TL's make/build infrastructure. AFAICS, the original
CWEB tarball is almost in its pristine state (apart from the
%s-changes), so merging and upgrading should be feasible.
