There are about 8 RC bug reports which show quite clearly that it
doesn't.  There's no sense in testing that in the maintainer script.  If
a local admin hacked the system so much that it keeps on working without
them, I frankly don't care - it's no longer a Debian TeX Live system.

Yes, we'll do it only once anyway.
