Dear all,

on the Debian side we got a bug report that we ship revtex 4.1 which
seems to be broken, according the aps itself:
and ask for inclusion of revtex 4.

What about adding a new tlpsrc package 
that ships the original revtex4 version which is still working?

Should we do that in TeX Live?

A throaty cough by someone else so timed as to obscure the crucial
part of the rather amusing remark you've just made.
