Well, I don't plan to make new scheme for font package
yet (or I have no idea yet).

# In TeX related fonts, they need to support TeX itself
# and also DVIwares, I guess.  And DVIwares have their
# own way to support extra fonts so it might be difficult
# to provide proper way to make font packages work well.

I would like to remark only one point.  In the latest 
tetex-bin, updmap is ordinary file in /usr/bin and it 
reads updmap.cfg which is a conffile.

I didn't investigate updmap yet but the same kind of
scheme work for a pair of updmap and updmap.cfg ?

# If it is appropriate, please feel free to move in 
# debian-tetex-maint ML.
