Hi Martin,

I saw this question and was so happy not to have to work out a
reply, given that it was _not_ addressed to the CTAN team  ;-)

 Actually, I don't know.  I can't remember any and would have to
 devise a shrewd strategy for finding them, if they exist.

 Maybe the author of such a package could come forward and
 draw our attention to it ...

 In any case:  I doesn't matter. 
 There is a "first" for everything.
 Everything that has to do, in one way or another, with TeX &
 friends, is welcome on CTAN.

 Finding the right CTAN location might of course be a problem,
 but, as you say, we have still a few months to think about this  :-)

 No need for asking again now.

 Whatever is okay for TL is okay for CTAN, although the reverse
 is not true.
