[xml/sgml-pkgs] Bug#473369: please split out tex backends to docbook-utils-tex or something

Package: docbook-utils
Version: 0.6.14-1
Severity: wishlist

It'd be nice if the part of docbook-utils which depended on jadetex would
be split out to docbook-utils-tex. This way I, and others, would not have
to install tex if all we wanted to do was render a docbook to html.
