I think having triggers definitely weighs up against the traditional
method of calling mktexlsr & co. with almost each and every package.
Sure, it will take more time when you install a new TL package. But
you don't install new packages many times. The average Joe will most
probably just install a large part of TL in one go.
But there is even a more important case: upgrading. Once in a while
new Debian TL packages are released, and most users usually have a lot
to upgrade. Having triggers will certainly speed up the upgrade
process, IMHO. And that is why I think having triggers is the way
My two cents.
