Yes indeed. But there is an easy way - we remove practically all
fonts from Debian, as well as of TeX ...

- we don't build the otf/ttf from the native (proprietary) format
- we don't buils sty/tex/cls files from the dtx
- we don't build pdf from sources

Consequence - all of that has to be removed ... yeah, sounds like
a reasonable way.

Christian, what about us two starting an upload session of hundreds
of emptied out packages to make sure Debian is not inflitrated
by bad things like TeX and Fonts? Would you join in? ;-)

All the best
