Not using tcemain in fe was clear from the first mail already ;-). I 
generally take your advice carefully, as in this case.
The reason for my reply was to find out why exactly you gave the advice, 
this is clear now too. I didn't intend to use it in fe because currently 
there is no need. I did use it in the cli script though, but that 
initializes as backend, so that is good.
