[tex-live] CJK in texlive*.deb packages (Debian testing)

Hi Norbert, hi all!

I have switched from tetex to texlive in Debian testing and use now
the texlive debian packages instead of my TeXLive2005 distribution
(that I have kept aside to be able to check possible differences).

Everything works fine and smooth for me, thanks *a lot* to all of those 
who worked hard on this project!

Only Chinese (CJK in fact but I only use Chinese) support is missing: 
there is no `texlive-lang-cjk' package, I tried to install the following 
packages instead:
cjk-latex, gs-cjk-resource,  freetype1-tools (these are OK),
the TTF fonts:
xfonts-arphic-bkai00mp, xfonts-arphic-bsmi00lp,
xfonts-arphic-gbsn00lp, xfonts-arphic-gkai00mp (OK too),
but the corresponding tfm-arphic-* packages:
tfm-arphic-bkai00mp, tfm-arphic-bsmi00lp,
tfm-arphic-gbsn00lp and tfm-arphic-gkai00mp
require tetex and *not* texlive. It looks like an (easy to fix?) 
dependence problem in the tfm-arphic-* packages...

Are there plans to build a `texlive-lang-cjk' package which would 
install all the stuff needed to typeset CJK languages, including the 
standard (free) fonts and their map files?

Thanks again and best wishes,
Daniel Flipo
