While I had a hard time resisting temptation to ask what the poster
was smoking or sniffing, some questions still remain:

1) Is TL2009 planned?

2) If there will be TL2009 how installation would be different from
TL2008 completely update with tlmgr?

While there seem to be no point to download TL2009 for current users,
for new users downloading TL2008 and then making massive update after
does not look right (sure, there is a network installer).

It would be nice to have some ideas about future plans - mainly to be
able to rebuff such "expert advice" without guesswork.

Thanks in advance
