I think we can try that. I will upload the current version of packages
to [testing]. I don't think it is a common practice to sliently
overwrite files in /etc, but I don't understand why new files get
installed as .pacnew.

I have tried the upgrade path from a clean Texlive 2012 install and it
does not replace the old files.
