So this means we could actually kill the collection-pdfetex and move the
packages to the respecitve places (partly latex-recommended, partly

This is IMHO a good move if we all agree on this.

Concerning context: I am still hoping that someone is packaing context
independently from tetex and texlive, so that one package can be used
for both texlive and tetex IN DEBIAN. (hints hints hints for the lurkers
on these list, one of you want to take over this job!?!? ;-)

Best wishes
