[OS X TeX] TeXLive tree

Tying to look at the xu-... hyphenation patterns, I discovered that  
the TeXLive i-package actually installs a new tree structure. I  
should have noticed it while installing the the package: it is in the  
readme file.

I have two questions though:

-- When the old teTeX based system disappears, will there be a way to  
automagically transfer stuff one has installed in /usr/local/teTeX/ 
share/texmf.local into the ``new'' /usr/local/TeXLive/texmf.local? I  
mean something other than command line trickery. Would it be  
possible, when the i-package is ripe enough, to add such a migration  
-- How does one (temporarily) add the teTeX texmf.local to the texmf  
trees searched by the new TeXLive setup? I understand this would be a  
potentially dangerous thing to do and that it would break at every  
update of the TeXLive i-package. Still, I could that way use the  
stuff in teTeX's texmf.local tree without copying it.
