as far as I know ruskie tried to build a texlive spell and gave up
because it was a mess.
Currently we are in the process of replacing the tetex and tetex-texmf
spells by packages build from ctan (for example latex-beamer has been
replaced by a more recent version in test). At the moment this is a
rather slow process since I do not have the time right know to put a lot
of work into it. If you are willing to contribute feel free to do so :)
