I believe so. teTeX is a mature system and is very popular. I don't
think there are serious problems in teTeX.

The only major problem is that dpkg has trouble in doing multiple
conflict and replace, the upgrade procedure is therefore more
complicated. Someone suggested that a script tetex-upgrade may be
used to perform the upgrade. I think it is not a bad idea given the
fact that uninstalling the old Debian TeX may not be straightforward
for some people due to the existing bugs.
