when installed under texmf-local, your changes will appear in all  
accounts, including non-admin. I run in this setup. texmf-local  
survives upgrades of texlive, although you must re-install the map  
files with the above instructions.

No, that will not happen, the additional map files will go into texmf- 
local. If you really want to keep things in your private tree, use  
updmap, not sudo updmap-sys. You're on your own here, I prefer the  
system wide setup.
