@Ralph + fellow Debian TeX maintainers:
If I set it to 20 instead of 10, will this be enough?
Or would 99 be better?  The Debian TeX Subpolicy 4.1.2 doesn't mention
a numbering scheme.

However, section 4.1.1 does give an example with "10name.cfg".
Perhaps we should preserve "10" for all the basic TeX packages, and
