maybe tug uses tex live to raise funds, but not the ntg and as far as i 
know neither dante;

anyhow, since the user groups distribute tex live as part of a bigger 
whole, arabtex can go into texmf-extra on the dvd; if the texmf.cnf file 
includes $TEXMFEXTRA (plus a suitable fallback value) then users only 
have to copy that tree
