The \abbr{TDS} cannot require any particular restriction on filenames in
the tree, since the names of many existing \TeX{} files conform to no
! particular scheme. For the benefit of people who wish to make a portable
\TeX{} distribution or installation, however, we outline here the
necessary restrictions. The \abbr{TDS} specifications themselves are
compatible with these.

+ Before the December 1996 release, \LaTeX{} used mixed-case names for
+ font descriptor files.  Fortunately, it never relied on case alone to
+ distinguish among the files.  Nowadays, it uses only monocase names.

Consequently, most of the first trials of the \abbr{TDS} will be made by
members of the \abbr{TDS} committee and/or developers of \TeX{}-related
! software.  Indeed, some of this has taken place during the course of our
deliberations (see Appendix~\ref{sec:Related references} for a sample
tree available electronically).  They will certainly result in the
production of a substantial number of \abbr{TDS}-compliant packages.

An alternative was to use the utility name below which all such
directories could be gathered.  That has the advantage of separating,
say, \path|gsftopk|-generated bitmaps from \path|ps2pk|-generated ones.
! However, we decided this was not sufficient; most sites will use only
one program for the purpose.  Also, we specify that every font
identifies its creator in specials in the font file itself.
