Noop. CTex is not available in tetex because it highly depend on XeTeX to
get the CJK fonts right.

No, it won't considered as a regression if we don't include CTex(does tetex
support CJK documents?). But since the total size
of /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/latex/ctex is only 221K, I think it will be a
big win with little effort if we include it.
