My grand-parents live in eastern-niedersachsen, and i was there for two days,
essentially so my grand-mother could meet her first great-grand-son.

Ok, i have to say that i didn't look into detail to the licencing info of the
example files. I am under the impression that this should be no problem as the
actual examples are copyrighted by the advi authors, and the rest should be
part of the tex common stuff, not sure though. It would be great if using
hevea.sty from the debian package would do it, but we would probably need to
add at least a suggest or recomends.
