Woud you be more accurate?
IMHO, the simple maintenance of csplain is:
ls texmf/tex/csplain ... I see all files of csplain package
for i in *; do diff $i /some/other/texmf/tex/csplain/$i
... I check the difference of all files
... I look into t1code.tex file
Adding a more complicated directory structure makes these tasks more
I am the author of csplain and I have the copyright of this package.
I wish to leave the tex/csplain directory structure in siple state.
I don't see any technical reason why the more complicated directory
structure have to be in tex/csplain.
Please, take this fact to your mind and revert the tex/csplain and
tex/cslatex directories to the old state.
