So, I'm trying to make some sensible choice. It can't follow those
"texlive-fonts-*" naming, for sure. I think "latex-cjk-*" packages are
good examples to follow. Prefixing it with "latex-" should help separate
it from desktop font packages when sorted, and group it with other
So, I think I'll use "latex-fonts-thai-tlwg". And I'll use the same pattern
for other Thai font packages to come.

So, I try to induce from current archive. "lmodern",
"texlive-fonts-recommended", "texlive-fonts-extra", "cm-super",
are all in "fonts" section. I should follow this, then.

I'll be using "dh $@ --with tex", and that should already invoke it.
