Hmmm, this means I could enhance my setup script to add that PPA

might give that a go...

Have you tried this yet?

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

No worries. Just wondering how things are going.

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.

I tried that and it appears to work OK.
