Dear Herbert,
I'm sure that this document is very helpful, especially the paragraph
beginning with

  "So, why not just use ÔupdmapÕ rather than Ôupdmap-sysÕ?"

But even if people are aware of the problem they often run ÔupdmapÕ
accidentally and don't remember later.

I assume that most people who encountered this problem ran ÔupdmapÕ
accidentally.  How can they be aware of ÔupdmapÕ at all if they didn't
read the documentation?

BTW, regarding map files you wrote

  "Note: make sure to end the file with at least one blank line."

Though this is usually a good idea, I think that it's worth to check
whether updmap can be made more robust in this regard.
