Well, I've already looked at this. AFAIK no magic there:
from tex/latex/pscyr/pscyr.sty:

         {\not at math@alphabet\rmfamily\mathrm

there is also definition of bold math mode and

from tex/latex/pscyr/t2afco.fd:

\DeclareFontShape{T2A}{fco}{m}{it}{<-> fcori6t}{}

from fonts/map/dvips/pscyr/pscyr.map:

fcori6a  CollegePSCyr-Italic "T2AEncoding ReEncodeFont" <t2a.enc 

Encoding file fonts/enc/dvips/pscyr/t2a.enc, but pdftex ignores 
ReEncodeFont, as stated in documentation.

Hope this helps.
