If we succeed in packaging texlive, yes. Is there an inherent problem
with this? The advantage of texlive is a more finegrained package
structure, the advantage of tetex is that it is here, now, fully
supported, well developed, working. Maybe in the future we can have both
worlds, fine grained and fully working. ThatŽs the reason Frank and I
are working together.
