Me too! The bad thing is that TeX Live comes without this support.  
It's obviously assumed that compiling software in the age of Open  
Source isn't appropriate ...

I am fooling software with a teTeX from a gwTeX installation!  
(Meaning: I haven't dared to download TeX sources, compile, and  
install them – over what is supplied/supported by tlmgr. I have no  
idea whether and how this could coexist.)



Theory and practice are the same, in theory, but, in practice, they  
are different.
