For those of you who are interested in this sort of thing, I've posted
an 884-page PDF document that illustrates TeX's loading of a few font
metric files:

   nullfont (internal)
   cmr10
   cmsy10
   cmex10

De document, and sources, are available at:

   http://tex.aanhet.net/temp/fontreader.pdf
   http://tex.aanhet.net/temp/fontreader.zip

Beware, the PDF is pretty large (7.7Mb). MetaPost, Perl and Context
sources are quite small (12kb), but very much a hack.
