Please unblock package texlive-bin

Dear release managers,

I have another unblock request, this time for
	texlive-bin 2012.20120628-3
which fixes exactely one small thing:

The cweave program has a fixed length array for identifier names.
Up to -2 this was set to 1000 as maximal length.

But DE Knuth's original sources do have this maximal length set
to 10000 since quite some time. The consequence is, that even
some of the programs from DEK's page cannot be c-weaved anymore.

The discussion came up on the TeX Live mailing list, here is a link
to the start of the thread:
http://tug.org/pipermail/tex-live/2012-September/032325.html

The changes in the package only concern the cweave program and consists
of the following simple patch:

--- texlive-bin-2012.20120628.orig/texk/web2c/cwebdir/cweave.w
+++ texlive-bin-2012.20120628/texk/web2c/cwebdir/cweave.w
@@ -124,7 +124,7 @@
 @d max_sections 10239 /* greater than the total number of sections */
 @d hash_size 8501 /* should be prime */
 @d buf_size 1000 /* maximum length of input line, plus one */
-@d longest_name 1000 /* section names and strings shouldn't be longer than this */
+@d longest_name 10000 /* section names and strings shouldn't be longer than this */
 @d long_buf_size (buf_size+longest_name)
 @d line_length 80 /* lines of \TEX/ output have at most this many characters;
   should be less than 256 */


which increases the longest allowed identifier to 10000 chars.

This patch has also been included in the upstream TeX Live sources.

I attach the full debdiff, that includes the other changes to 
debian/changelog, debian/quilt/series, and the patch itself.

Thanks for your consideration

Norbert
