It seems that csquotes is popular, and some of these others look like
they'd be generally useful.  However, they'll of course require lots
more size added unless I add single font packages, and that seems a
bit too "pick and choose" for my tastes.  

If any of these (or the others mentioned by other people) are in the
Slackware tetex package, then I think that's grounds for addition.
Otherwise, would it be acceptable to you if the missing bits are 
easily available in a separate build on SBo?

On a related note, what's the general preference on that?
A single large package containing everything else, or multiple
packages that provide more specific subsets of functionality?
