Let's say: we'll do in happily in the new "mathpmtx" because we cannot
simiply replace cmex9 with a scaled cmex10 in the old "mathptm"
without changing the metrics.  If the target is pdfTeX, where Type 1
fonts are required, using "mathptmx" might have another advantage
becase it uses "rsfs" instead of ZapfChancery, which is not a built-in
font in free Acrobat readers and might not be available to all users.
