Yes, I understand that and had spent quite amount of time getting such
map file right, but I consider that approach less "XeTeX-like" as most
XeTeX documents / setup should just work out of the box without
tweaking in each TeX installation. The motivation for my initial patch
is to make such map files unnecessary.
