every package that uses pdftex can, but the question is 'does the 
package use it'; this feature has been around in pdftex for quite a 
while is \pdfmapline for individual map entries (add, remove, overload); 
using this primitive can help you to avoid inclusion mess of old 
documents due to changed or updated fonts as well asl keep your font 
files more organized (esp when you have a truckload of fonts not 
included in tex live)
