yup: the few that adam (was it?) listed were things where i couldn't say
off-hand what ctan package (if any) the tl package would refer to.

we aggregate differently; some things we enumerate exhaustively where
you just bundle the lot up (the contrib/misc directories, for example),
and it seemed that some of those listed were individual items of font
packages which we probably do have, but not immediately recognisable.
