Am I misunderstanding things if I say that you need both parts for
tex4ht to work? In that case, it should all be part of texmf. It is
function, not how it is updated that should define its place in the dir
structure. I.e., if the file changes when the pdftex binary changes
(.e.g. .pool files), they should be in a separate directory from stuff
that is independent from the program. I am going to stop here, we
discussed this earlier.
I still wonder what happened to the outcome of the earlier discussion
on texmf trees and their roles. I think that was pretty well discussed
to a conclusion and I even recall that Sebastain had said he was going
to implement it. And now suddenly (to me) it seems we are going into
another direction entirely which IMO makes matters maybe good for
CD/DVD distribution, but in the meantime harms the use of TL as the
basis of my (dynamic) net-distribution.
