Yes, sorry - the conflicts are un-versioned. I fear it won't work this
way. However, there's already a texlive-compliant package of texmacs
(and some other packags) at
deb http://www.tug.org/texlive/Debian/ updpkg/
(see http://www.tug.org/texlive/debian.html). It corresponds to the
testing version of texmacs (Norbert, are you subscribed to the PTS of
these packages, so that you notice when there's a new version in
testing? Should we subscribe the list to the PTS?)

Yes, and it's already more up-to-date in etch. But we didn't manage to
contact all package maintainers to add texlive as alternative dependency.

beamer should work fine with texlive, what's the problem?

It's not texlive that isn't compliant, it's a couple of add-on
