[tex-live] enhancement suggestion

       I have been a user of MikTEx under Windows, and then Texlive 
(under unix). What seems to me to be missing in any tex distribution for 
unix I know, is something like the option "-enable-installer" of MikTex, 
that enables on the fly installation of packages directly downloaded 
from CTAN.

       It seems to me that such an option is very important for people 
don't wanting to have a whole and huge installation of Tex, since it 
will just adapt itself to the tex files they are wanting to compile.

Best regards.
