Thanks.  I think we'll want you to keep your custom TEXINPUTS for
$HOME.  If we'd activate HOMETEXMF in texmf.cnf, it causes problems
for people that use spaces or other non-ASCII characters in their
$HOME/login.  From questions we get on the LilyPond lists, people
don't seem to hesitate to do that any more.

Hmm, that's not good.  Does that package have a new name?  Otherwise
we're in dire need of versioned depends.

Ok.  So tetex-beta and texmf-base/-tiny packages need to run the same
postinstall script; we'll have to merge them, I think.

Thanks for the report.
