Is it possible to run mktexlsr and updmap-sys (and, possibly, other
TeX things) just once when installing or removing packages which need

not-really-needed latex-cjk-* packages to minimize my old
laptop's system installed size, and the removal process appeared to run
for ages...
I think these processes could be moved over to dpkg triggers, it just takes
someone to do the work.

I think, whatever can be covered by triggers, already is. tex-common has
trigger support for some time now.


I'm not a maintainer.  I don't see the validity of this response (which I responded to).

RE: the request was reduce triggering and the answer suggested only how to add triggering (while not saying how the tail end would be detected)

The dpkg-triggers goes beyond being a make(1) compatible process in a very few aspects of it - doesn't it? A make process would guaruntee order while dpkg-triggers leaves "overwritten" requests that "may be activated later" in no documented order.
