In this case, it will be another choice to include cweb
in tetex-* packages as you know.

And as far as I tested in a bit old system with only the
newest libkpathsea3 installed

civic:~$ dpkg -l libkpathsea3 tetex-bin jtex-bin ptex-bin dvipsk-ja dvi2ps xdvik-ja
| Status=Not/Installed/Config-files/Unpacked/Failed-config/Half-installed
|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name           Version        Description
ii  libkpathsea3   2.0-2          shared libkpathsea for teTeX
ii  tetex-bin      1.0.7+20021025 teTeX binary files
ii  jtex-bin       1.8-5.1        Japanese TeX (NTT version) and other japanes
ii  ptex-bin       3.0.5+0.04-2   ASCII pTeX binary files
ii  dvipsk-ja      5.90a+jp1.5g-3 DVI-to-PostScript translator with Japanese s
ii  dvi2ps         3.0a1-5        TeX DVI-driver for NTT jTeX, MulTeX and ASCI
ii  xdvik-ja       22.15-j1.04-4  X-window TeX previewer using vflib2 for Japa

- dviwares like xdvik-ja, dvipsk-ja seemed to work fine
as I expected though they showed the same message as cweave.

civic:~/scr/tex/sample/platex$ dvips -f plnews07 > plnews07.ps
dvips: Symbol `kpse_format_info' has different size in shared object, consider re-linking

- However dvi2ps has a bit problem.  It has a special
mechanism "fontdesc" for font searching in additin to
kpathsea but it seemed that mechanism did not work and 
simply usual kpathsea worked so it failed to find Japanes
fonts (but no problem with English/ascii fonts, perhaps)

- jtex-bin and ptex-bin seemed to work fine if they were
already installed.  They might cause the problem only
at installation or removal.

So I suspect there would be only a few or several packages 
which really need to be setted Conflicts: in libkpathse3.
