Is there more that should be installed as reasonable basic set? I made a script that does fetch/installs it (and also wipes latex / plain /useless stuff afterwards including some shell etc scripts as we don't want those either - security risk etc -).

Not being a tikz user I have no preferences but we can add some test files to the test suite if needed.
