Sure, you are right regarding the file contents. But, Staszek's question

pattern files along the regular texinputs path, there is no other way
to go.

I am sure that you can easily write a parser for pdftex (at macro level)
that could even read the original map files (if the would exist in the
texinputs search path) :-)

Still, that's not the question. At least: not now...

Being a TeX macro programmer, you want everything in the texinputs 
path, sure. :-)
