Does this mean that there is a possibility of teTeX 3.0 being the last one to be
If this is indeed the case, then, I think that it would be nice to give this
warning to the users with a pointer to use texlive. :-( And it would be nice if
texlive were a bit smaller...
The whole teTeX 3.0 that I have now installed (sans documentation) is way
smaller than the packages that provided similar functionality from Norbert's
texlive upload to experimental (and I tried to pull in the smallest amount of
packages that I could).
I see that, by this trend, having small, customized solutions made for friends
that just need some LaTeX+Emacs+GCC+some browsing is getting harder. :-(
Thanks anyway for the warning, Rogério Brito.
