Okay, I've not synced it up yet, but I just finished generating new
tarballs for those with the ctex stuff included in the main archive.
I'm still not convinced that this is the best approach, and in fact,
I'm going to run some tests with the gust scheme moved into the
extra archive instead of main, and that will also (probably) push
xetex (and thus ctex) into the extra archive too. I don't know what
impact this will have on the sizes, but if it's a significant change
to the main archive (i.e. if it's appreciably smaller) and there's
not any effect on functionality with respect to what Slackware the
distro needs, then that's probably what I'll do.
