I'll apply the patch you sent.

Perhaps we should write up how tex and latex work so we understand
the machinery better first. I have looked at it, Bill has looked at
it, and you have looked at it. Some boot code knows about tex as
well as some of the algebra code. Even some of the lisp code gets
involved (the ELT bug in strings). I agree we need to rethink this
but rather than add another version perhaps we should do deep 
surgery and redesgn it.

David Mentre is the "bug czar". We can do it any way he wants.
