Sure, but aren't font resources shared anyway? when i run texexec 
--pdfrrange :

2,937,036 metafun-p.pdf
3,164,832 texexec.pdf

that one is run with fontnameless map files so the fonts are embedded only 
once it seems (or maybe this is the object inclusion optimizer preventing 
the duplicates)

(i wonder what happens with such names when including a file made on a mac 
in a tex job run on win/lin, esp since most fonts come in mac or win versions)

somehow i still feel a bit unsure in including the FontNames since they are 
not guaranteed unique (across font instances) and i really want to test 
that much more (the current pdftex is already pretty clever with fonts 
thanks to you)
