After reading between the lines... how exactly do you picture these
packages (tetex & Co.) achieving this:
- Use ucf to avoid pushing users to the ghetto
- Use only /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf (instead of /etc/texmf/texmf.d/...)
- Conform to policy
I'm not saying these are necessarely incompatible with each other, but
I don't think it's straighforward. Maybe the second point is something
you don't actually have in mind...
