the reason why i create the map files the way we do is that i want to prevent pdftex to be too clever in sharing font resources (thre are versions out there that assume sequivalent "Names" to always equivalent which is not always true (think of slanted or extended fonts)  

(i've been bitten too often by that so i play safe) 

it is no problem to add that entry optionally (grep for cleanfont in texexec.pl; to tired to see the light now)
