Root TEXMFDIST, TEXMFSYSVAR and TEXMFSYSCONFIG in a single location :
i.e., X:\TeX\Live\<Year>\TeXMF\Dist, X:\TeX\Live\<Year>\TeXMF\Var, X:\TeX\Live\<Year>\TeXMF\Config
I can (with the current GUI installer but not the new one) accomplish the 2nd and 3rd of these but not the first.
TEXMFLOCAL is already rooted at :
I have no idea what TEXMFVAR and TEXMFCONFIG might be used for, but I have never found any reason to install anything in either of them, so I have never needed (or wanted) to configure their locations.
