we have publically announced often enough that the core of 2e is essentially
frozen except for serious bug fixes and new development should happen at
package level --- all this because of compatibility making sure that documents
do work identically (as far as possible) from one maintenence release to the
next, and i still think this is the right decision.

i nevertheless begin to wonder if we should change the default font encoding
from OT1 to T1 so that more people get proper hyphenation without the need to


in their documents and would be interested to hear what the opinion on this
list would be (not that i consider this list a representative sample of the
average LaTeX user).
