I must be thick headed. How can you say that the kernel will never
need to be modified for a new package? I accept that in most cases,
this is true, but saying that it is always true is absurd.
Also, why don't future names pile up as unchangeable? The LaTeX
project release file FOO. Bob modifies and renames it to BAR and puts
it under the LPPL. Alice modifies that, renames it to BAZ, and puts
that under the LPPL. Eve modifies it again and doesn't know what to
name it, since we've run out of silly computer science names.
