Further modularization seems to be the best way how to do this in the
future. The current subpackage structure is designed for easy adoption
by the packages dependent on tetex so that it's almost identical.
The current strategy is to replace tetex with texlive in F8 in a way
that a minimal overhead is needed from the other package maintainers, so
that it can be done smoothly and quickly.
