math and cyrillic i guess

the idea was that the latin modern would replace plr/csr/aer and part of

why not play dicatator a bit and announce to throw them out unless it 
can be proven that it's needed -)

well, sometimes one gets away with just starting a war and removing unwanted elements from the scenery 

btw, since it's scripts doing the automatic mf to pk thing (in case of missing fonts), couldn't those tools just gunzip the files before they are used? kind of what the new kpse library will do
