indeed, the texexec.rme file is changed accordingly; i needed that 
change because & is giving to much problems in nested calls; also, next 
year there will be changes again because from now on web2c formats will 
be fmt, like

  web2c/pdfetex/cont-en.fmt

instead of

  web2c/cont-en.efmt

(currently both -efmt and -fmt are handled by the latest pdfetex) ; i 
didn't check miktex yet
