You're right: updmap follows a set of paths, takes what it finds  
first and copies it to a temporary place where it works on the copy.  
Then the working copy is copied to the proper place, which is in the  
~/.texlive2007 tree. Missing directories are created. Everything from  
the original file is preserved, particularly which LW35 option to use  
and whether to download the "ubiquitous" 14 PDF fonts or not.

My two steps are not necessary (and I hopefully remember this when  
TeX Live 2008 is released!).



Indentation?! I will show you how to indent when I indent your skull!
