True, completely.

Well there is no texlive-previewlatex (If we would go down to this level
we would have several hundreds of debian packages, and we decided not to
do this).

I have taken out preview-latex of the texlive-latexextra package (not of
course out of TeX live proper).

Fortunately the debian package preview-latex-style does NOT depend on
tetex specifically, so you can install it also into texlive.

The texlive-latexextra suggests preview-latex-style
