Initial Comment:
Hello developers,

I'd like to use the autoexpand feature with dvips. Are
there any plans to make pdftex write the autoexpanded
tfm files to the current directory, perhaps even
generating a map file? 

Cheers,
Michael

It is likely that this will never be implemented. The better
way to do that is to change the script \<TEX> (\<PDFTEX>)
calls to create missing \<TFM> during run-time (on
\<WEB2C>-based systems this is called |mktextfm|) to create
all the required stuff on demand.
