Hello Matej,

    I am not sure about your policy (what to include and what to reject). 

I try to include everything from CTAN that is free (as in freedom) and
that is not incredibly hard to install.  (I am sure there are tons of
packages that have been missed over the years, but that's the general idea.)

    Do you think that cmarrows could be included in TeXLive?

Yes.  And in fact, I installed it in the repository a few days ago when
I saw the CTAN announcement and the author kindly sent me the
documentation sources.  I believe it's in the current test image, if
not, it will be in the next one.

    But TeXLive is not (and might not want to be) composed from such
    finely grained packages.

TL follows CTAN, rather than other repackagings.

Thanks for writing.
