No... I worked on a different open source project last night... I hope
to try this idea out sometime over this coming weekend.

But if you are in a rush, you can just do it "by hand" by adding that
PPA, and then installing texlive from the packages, then downloading
the lubuntu-manual- saucy branch using bzr, and running
pkgs/install-pkgs.sh to
complete the installation.  I haven't tried that either, but it
"should" work.
