And probably not much more. Currently all the stuff is done via
dh_installtex, which we have to keep up2date anyway.

In fact only to TDS layout, nothing else, since the rules call

Yes, that was my idea.

The only changes actually belonging to the html inclusion was in the
tpm2deb.cfg file, and they were minimal.

All the other changes can be incorportated now, they were bug fixes,

- I incorporate the stuff from htmlxml branch which is not strictly
  necessary for the stuff, the bug fixes, into trunk
- include the rest of the diff into the svn trunk/patches
- remove the branch

Everyone agrees?
