- tetex-bin and tetex-extra do still exist, as metapackages, and we
would like to have the freedom to change their dependencies as we
learn about users' needs, without bothering whether some package is
broken by this.
- It would be nice if tetex-doc, and therefore the complete tetex-base
source package, could be removed.
