description="""
Instead of including install scripts from the infrastructure into every binary package, just include the necessary information and split the scripts off into a separate package that is installed first (right after bootstrap, as soon as the first package needs it). This affects user creation, installation of tex packages, ...

Also add support for actions that happen once after a big upgrade session, instead of once per package (e.g. ls-lR rebuild for tex).

An intermediate step would be to replace various remaining INSTALL scripts by declarative statements and install script snippets using them.
