It is one the one hand a live dvd, but also one of the most complete TeX
systems. There are several differences between tetex and texlive,
especially wrt the granularity of packaging. See the discussion on
tetex-maint ML which I had with Frank Küster, maintainer of tetex. In
fact he asked me to file the ITP as we are working on this.

On ornate head-dress or loose garment worn by a person in the belief
that it renders then invisibly native and not like a tourist at
all. People who don huge colonial straw collie hats with 'I Luv Lagos'
on them in Nigeria, or fat solicitors from Tonbridge on holiday in
Malaya who insist on appearing in the hotel lobby wearing a sarong
know what we're on about.
