(4) with many documentation/books and packages which assume that
    enc files are in "normal" (old) place.
    There exist books and documentation about
    "how to install your private font" which will be not removed from
    Internet during a while. The books will be not destroyed.
    The packages will be still exist on the Internet with the old
    map files places. Only one example from many others:


    There is the texmf/dvips/config/slido.map file in
    slido.tgz package. If this package moves its slido.map
    to new place then this package will be incompatible with old TeX
    systems. Need we two variants of slido.tgz packages?
