It was on purpose at the time, but I think we can package the extension
itself for Buster.
However, upstream does plan on dropping the OCaml texvc binary that
currently generates math images in favor of a nodejs renderer called
"mathoid", which I have no intention of packaging due to the complexity.
If that happens in time for the next MediaWiki LTS (1.31 in May/June
2018) then I don't plan on maintaining texvc or the Math extension in
Debian and will ask for its removal.
