Reinhard: An off-list message from Karl led me to think a change from
compiled binary and shell script to lua scripts *was* urgent (one week
was mentioned). In any case, I've implemented all your suggestions (for
which I thank you) and the revised versions are now at CTAN.

TeXLive isn't the *only* consumer of CTAN files. The dvipdfm map was in
the upstream bundle and presumably dvipdfm is used by some musixtex-ers.
The map file could be omitted from TeXLive if it's useless there.
