Correct. But why do we have different policy here: In collection-french
we have latex packages (aeguill, le) but no dependency on
collection-latex, while in czechslovak and polish we have a dependency
oncollection-latex? Maybe I miss something special in

Anyway, it's good with me, although I will have to hack the postinst
scripts a bit for debian ;-)
