The `auxiliary file' mentioned in the copyright notice amounts to a
patch. It is fairly clumsy compared to `real' patch files but it works.
Actually, it should be reasonably easy to get GNU diff to emit `change
files' that the TeX support tools can understand.
Anyway, even RMS considers TeX free enough to declare it part of a GNU
system. We'd look quite silly if we were to pronounce TeX non-free.
