It provides the following features:
- installs TeX Live
- notifies apt so that apt does not try to install the Ubuntu texlive-* packages as dependencies (e.g. if you do sudo apt-get install lyx)
- installs (optionally) additional LaTeX files for common journals that are not included in TeX Live
- links to the folder where Ubuntu installs TeX files so that when you install Ubuntu packages (e.g. FoilTeX and noweb) with LaTeX files, they will be available
