Revtex 4 not found

Bug Description

Binary package hint: texlive-publishers

Attempting to compile a file with the revtex4 document style fails with

! LaTeX Error: File `revtex4.cls' not found.

After a lot of tinkering, I observed that revtex 4.1 is present in texlive-publishers, and changing the document style to revtex4-1 removed the problem.

However, this is NOT a satisfactory solution: revtex4 is a *very* widely used document style, and when passing a manuscript back and forth between myself and other co-authors (who have revtex4 installed), it becomes necessary to tweak the document style again and again. So texlive-publishers ought to support both revtex4 and revtex4-1.

Texlive-publishers 2009-09 in Debian Unstable contains both the revtex4 and the revtex4-1 classes. If the Ubuntu package could be updated to this version, it would be much appreciated, especially since revtex4-1 doesn't work properly with the natbib version that's in Maverick at the moment.
