[tex-live] can you remove a package from TeXLive?

I'm afraid I need to request that a package be removed from TeXLive. I'm
the maintainer of SageTeX , which works with Sage  and LaTeX.
Since Sage is (largely) a Python program, SageTeX uses both a Python
module and LaTeX style file, and these two things need to be
synchronized if SageTeX is going to work.
A new version of Sage gets released once a month or so, and while
TeXLive is updated frequently, I don't think most users update TL as
often as they might update Sage. I've already run into problems with
sagetex.sty from TL shadowing the version from Sage, so I think in this
case it would be best to request that SageTeX be removed from TL.
I hate doing this, as I'm very pleased that my work has been included
with TL, but I think it's probably the best thing to do.
