Remember that I suggested to have a "tex-common" package.  It could take
care of all the merging of information from the different packages into
a common updmap.cfg, fmtutil.cnf, etc.  However, I'm currently getting
some hope that teTeX-3.0 will make it into sarge, and therefore will
concentrate my work on this.
