If I understand correctly, you do not need the script unless you need to 
do special processing to your own map snippet (and in that case I
do not know how to do that).

If you have a prebuilt snippet named 'zhmcjk.map' and you put it in
the right TDS place in the package, then all you have to do is add

   addMap zhmchk.map

to the tlmgr directives. No need for a special script in that case,
tlmgr will take care of everything.

Best wishes,
