Dear Heiko and LaTeX folks,

    I have tried to generate TDS archives that can be unpacked
    in a texmf tree directly. 
    [...]
    http://www.informatik.uni-freiburg.de/~oberdiek/tmp/latex-tds/index.html

I agree with the general sentiment that this is great, but would it be
possible for these TDS-compliant archives of the LaTeX trees themselves
to be on CTAN, somehow?  Seems like it would be useful for CTAN to hold
these improved/optimized zip archives as well as (or maybe even instead
of) the autogenerated ones.

And having them on CTAN makes it easier to use them for TL (and other
distributions, I imagine).

Perhaps, for example, 
macros/latex/base-tds.zip
macros/latex/required/cyrillic-tds.zip
macros/latex/required/graphics-tds.zip
macros/latex/required/tools-tds.zip

Thanks,
Karl
