Spending many hours on repackaging urw fonts for TL, I have the following
conclusions (perhaps interesting for CTAN people and implementors):
1. "urwstd" has gone (#3414)
2. introduced "urw" package: base35 fonts which can serve as substitution
   of standard Adobe 35 fonts (only afm+pfb) + Antiqua + Grotesk (full 
   support: afm, pfb, tfm, fd)
   It can be seen somehow inconsequent, but I hope that it would be more
   easy to add such a package eg. to teTeX ;-)
   Anyway, I'm open to the suggestions, eg. separating Antiqua and Grotesq
   in some other packages
3. introduced "urw35vf" (#3416) which contains all (historical?) stuff
   for those using urw fonts directly (.vf, .tfm, .fd, .sty files).

As usual, after such reparation some screws are left, namely nimbus.
I don't know what to do, making separate package or to zap.
