1) The correct URL is actually ftp://tug.org/tex/fontname/adobe.map
(or alternatively ftp://ftp.tug.org/pub/tex/fontname/adobe.map)
2) There are altogether 12 fonts belonging to Adobe's Eurofont package,
none of which uses the font name "Eurofont" (as you did in adobe.map).
To do it right you would have to allocate font names ppi039 -- ppi050
for "EuroSerif", "EuroSans", and "EuroMono" (each in two weights and
two shapes), which would make it difficult to tell which one is which.
3) There are existing applications that already make use of "zpeu" names
as follows (see CTAN:fonts/utilitites/fontinst/examples/eurofont):
zpeur EuroSerif-Regular _3______
zpeuri EuroSerif-Italic _3i_____
zpeub EuroSerif-Bold _3b_____
zpeubi EuroSerif-BoldItalic _3bi____
zpeurs EuroSans-Regular _1______
zpeuris EuroSans-Italic _1i_____
zpeubs EuroSans-Bold _1b_____
zpeubis EuroSans-BoldItalic _1bi____
zpeurt EuroMono-Regular _2______
zpeurit EuroMono-Italic _2i_____
zpeubt EuroMono-Bold _2b_____
zpeubit EuroMono-BoldItalic _2bi____
I still believe that this would make a more sensible naming scheme.
