Well I am against calling texlinks in the postinst and creating files
which are *NOT* removed at remove/purge time.

So: if we provide the functionality in dh_installtex, it should create the
links by itself (without texlinks) in debian/$(package)/usr/bin
and should NOT put code like texlinks into the postinst script.

Or better, devs create the symlinks by themselves in the rules file.

What do you think, which of the two options is better?

Best wishes
