as I've been asked from users if it is possible to provide a message for
each file not found, I'd like to asked for a feature in the kpathsea library.
Such a feature may provide the possibility to show messages how to install a
missed package like texlive-colortab or a virtual dependency like
`tex(colortab.sty)' and how to install them. This would be useful for TeXLive
upstream as well as for distributions providing TeXLive packages[1,2].
