Options are painful (because default binary packages use the default
options), and the standard view is that they are used only when they
solve a real issue that's otherwise difficult.  You adding another tex
package to the list you want, and having everything ok after you install
it,is not a big problem :-)  Plus, if you used some of
tex-collection-*, it might be there already -- are you avoiding that?
