    karl can comment on the naming thing

I can?

An other remark regarding '8a'. Is there a reason not to prefer:
\def\adobe_encoding{}? Psnfss treats the type1 fonts as

A reason? Whatever you do with fontinst is up to you :-).

As for as external filenames go (ones that end up in TeX documents and
DVI files and VF files), I think it's preferable to use the explicit
extension when it applies. No extension is technically correct, since
all it means is unspecified'', but one might as well give more
information where possible.
