No, I can't and, on the contrary, I wouldn't recommend it. Now that the
Esperanto problem is solved by simply disabling "other languages" in the
Language selection and still selecting the full scheme. I prefer
"everything except known broken stuff" instead of "only known non-broken
stuff" :)

So, I didn't have to install anything manually in the end (well, except
Tiqwah, but I don't think you can include Tiqwah in TeX Live, i.e. Yannis
would probably not like the idea).

If one day someone will write a free software that can do Hebrew
consonants, vowels and accents in pdfLaTeX then I will use it instead of 

Kind regards
