I'd think this was a joke but I have a horrible feeling that you
actually mean it.
Any change to LaTeX that required a change to TeX is out of the question.
It would be _years_ before suitably modified TeXs were installed on
sufficient platforms (if ever). The whole point of the tex macro
language is that formats run over _TeX_. If individual formats start
mandating differently modified tex engines then they would rightly be
ignored by the user base.

It's 631 lines too much.
TeX isn't writen in C. Even if it was available in web the above reasons
would mean that such a solution wouldn't be even a remote possibility.
