Adding things that say: these map modules only for application a, these
others only for application b is against the 'keep it simple' design of
updmap. That's something that the application should provide, i.e. dvips's
  p +foo.map
in config.ps.

All applications used to have such a feature: dvips, xdvik, dvipdfm,
pdftex. Did we really loose pdftex here? Is this intentional? Martin?
