No, it is not. Damned. I tried.

First of all, loading latex.ini of latex.ltx without anything is bad, as
a \dump is hidden there ...

Second, if I do a
	\input latex.ini
at the beginning of jadetex.ini it still breaks:

! LaTeX Error: Encoding scheme `' unknown.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.
l.39 ...titution{\LastDeclaredEncoding}{cmr}{m}{n}

while with the &latex jadetex.ini (original version):

Grrrr... so we are out again. What now? Any ideas?

Best wishes
