This could be an option, too. But we need to definitly resolve the 
problems regarding the, if we do not want to revert to 
previous version of teTeX (see the new thread from today regarding lyx). 
It seems that there are some more people having problems with it and I 
think we should resolve this problem.

Btw.: It would be nice to know what demon (sorry, I don't know his real 
name) as the maintainer is thinking about this. Anybody knows if he's in 
holidays or something like this?
