in latex (not pdflatex), fonts are shown in over/underfull messages in
a very convenient form: e.g. \T1/cmr/m/n/12, but with pdflatex the
font names shown as they are make the messages harder to read.
so it would be good to revert this change, if possible: it will make
pdftex more compatible with standard tex. it's always possible to use
\show\tenrm to find out the font name.
