I played with installation of TL into `~' and faced with strange
"limitation" of `install-tl':
if I set installation path (TEXDIR) to
which is expanded to
installation goes fine, but when I tried to use
) 'install-tl' warns me:
!! The default location as given below is forbidden or
!! can't be written to.
!! Either change the destination directory using <1> or create it
!! outside this script.

installation process goes without problem.

) allows to install TL without manual intervetion.
Is this intended limitation?
