    Ugh.  I'd still prefer some language encouraging people to gravitate towards
    saying \input latex/foobar, etc.

I don't think this is desirable, even if / becomes a universal directory
separator (not likely to happen any time soon, anyway). Why should every
<format> user have to preface each \input with `<format>'? Seems like
TeX should be smart enough to do the Right Thing.

    But also, I think that the issue of when duplicate file names within
    texmf/tex are allowed should be explicitly addressed.  

Yes, good point. I'll dream up something along these lines for us to
start from.

    (This real world example is for the cmttss{c,lc,bc} fonts by Art Ogawa.)
    I don't have a solution to offer for this, but it might be a good idea

The solution, btw, is for Art to rename his files.
I suggested this to him once, but he didn't reply.
