[tex-live] Bug#764122: MnSymbol and new[tp]x shouldn't be in the texlive-fonts-extra ghetto

Hi Juliusz,

    What about mnsymbol?  It's a fairly small package, and is a simple,
    hassle-free way to get a bunch of mathematical symbols that blend
    relatively well with many common fonts

I guess I don't have any overwhelming argument against it, but it would
be nice if I had a note from at least one other user that moving it from
one collection to the other would be a practical benefit.

My general feeling is that for pretty much any package X in a
collection C, there is an argument that it should be in collection C2
instead.  So in self-defense, I try to be conservative in such moves.
