I doubt that this is true. Who specified it when and where? There is no
version 2e for TeX and/or Metafont as they have these 'pi' and 'e' number
from Don Knuth. 2e is a latex version number that is as hardware independent
as you can get.

I guess this is an oversight by Nils. All the files in /lib/texmf/{ini,mf}
are also in /usr/lib/texmf/{ini,mf}. Moreover, the /lib/texmf/ini stuff are
debian specific install files.
