That is definitely incredible work!

But you know there is a bunch of users (me included) who have got used to
the haystack and grown ignorant about even figuring out what constitutes
the haystack and what they really need from it.

A full distro made it possible for them to remain so ... Not anymore on
NetBSD perhaps. I'll need to ask myself what from TeXLive distro I use
anyway and look for a match in pkg.

(Or is that not so hard?)
