Maybe you would want to wait till tomorrow. I have started to go 
manually through some remaining packages but realized that most of the 
work is probably already done by ctan maintainers -- the 
correspondence between texcat and texlive packages is already in 
texlive element in the catalogue entries. I will try tomorrow to look 
how it could be used and to what extent.
