FWIW, the missing lucida metrics affect ConTeXt as well. The lb*.tfm
files where included in tetex, but they are not in texlive anymore,
so we had someone upgrading from tetex who suddenly discovered that
old input files don't work any more.

It's OK, I am aware things change over time. Just wanted to let you
know and I hope the metrics can be re-included next year.

Best wishes,
