Jindrich, many thanks for this, looking at the spec files, one can
really appreciate what a monumental packaging feat this is.

Is the plan to keep tetex in rawhide for a transitional period? Moving
to TeXlive means some packaging renaming (did that tex-foo guideline
ever get past the packaging committee?) and some adjusting of
BuildRequires and Requires. (and some Obsoletes and Provides too).
