Is there any consensus on this yet?

Noone has said "no, don't use packaged texlive it breaks stuff" yet.

 From the mail thread (and my own quick test) it appears that the
version in the repos. works for 13.04 and the upstream version will
be needed for those that are running 12.04.

Correct.  Well, 12.04 users could try backporting the 13.04 texlive
source packages instead.  It could work, but seems more effort than it
is worth at this point :)

Good, so if anybody hasn't used TeXLive could install it and have a play while we sort out who's doing what.
