Just curious, what changed?  AFAICS the fmtutil-sys in 20140523-2 also
accepts --byfmt.

The change is in the --enablefmt/--disablefmt commands. For example, there are two formats called cont-en, one with engine pdftex and one with engine xetex. It used to be that you could write

  fmtutil-sys --enablefmt cont-en

and both of those formats would be enabled.  Now you have to write

  fmtutil-sys --enablefmt cont-en/pdftex


  fmtutil-sys --enablefmt cont-en/xetex

or both.  But for --byfmt, you still just use cont-en as before.

Also, I'm a bit confused by the use of $formats.  It seems to just be a
list of all ${fmt%/*}, but then in the --byfmt call you have ${format

That's just a careless mistake on my part. Thanks for catching it. I should have just used $format in the --byfmt call. The point of $formats is that it's a list of all ${fmt%/*} *without repetitions*; for example, cont-en would occur twice if I didn't remove repetitions.
