That would work for the library issue, and would "only" makes some
packages FTBFS because tetex changed (but I can think we can live with
that). Even better, if you do it right, you can change the
libkpathsea-dev to libkpathsea4-dev if TeTeX-3.0 has reached testing,
and then the depending programs will slowly flow in (and that library
transition wouldn't be as blocking as a normal one).
