the ! has been in for long time, so shouldn't it stay there for
backwards compatibility? Virtually nobody knows about the new !-less
case as it's documented nowhere, so anybody wanting this no-load feature
will use the ! sign.

And the +-= go in front of the tfm names, not the fontfile names. So +-=
doesn't collide with the ! anyway.

It's in my suggested patch (does the same with and without !) but this
can be left out if wanted.
