    BasicTeX.pkg is the basic scheme 
    with some added items.

I see that is still what is described in
http://pages.uoregon.edu/koch/BasicTeX.pdf, but I think (hope) that is
simply out of date.

I created scheme-small at Dick's request specifically to be used for
BasicTeX (it is scheme-basic plus those "added" packages that he
wanted), and I was under the impression that Dick was in fact using it.
