How many people *really* use tex ? This 33616KB is wasting on most of
instalations. And there are people that doesnt free this space althru
dont use tex, because they think that if this is in standard it should
be installed, cause we knew what we were doing when chosing priority,
and some random pieces of software may stop working if they throw tex out.
