perhaps csplain should just be dropped from texlive ...
At present, I see no overriding reason why cstex can't be included in
tl. Fundamentally, I don't think Petr's name restriction makes cstex
nonfree any more than Knuth's name restriction makes hyphen.tex nonfree.
Petr, I do think it would be good for you to clarify the intended
status/license of derived versions, since of course that is a
fundamental point of free software.
(I wish neither name restriction existed; I don't think they fulfill the
intended purpose. But that's just me.)
I will try to work with Petr and crew to make sure that TL includes a
cstex that is (a) compliant and (b) usable. I feel sure that (a) and
(b) can be satisfied simultaneously, if we remain of stout heart and
good cheer :).
