The last two are from the eruofont package and not the marvosym
package. I guess we can simply delete them, but ok they do not disturb.

The first one is due to my lazyness. I did an update op the marvosym
package from CTAN, and didn't care for deleting strange stuff. OTOH,
this is the way as it is shipped from CTAN, so why not leave it like
this, or fix the upload on CTAN. If this is done, at the next update the
file will be gone.

One of those push tapes installed in public washrooms enabling the
user to wash their trousers without actually getting into the
basin. The most powerful esher of recent years was 'damped down' by
Red Adair after an incredible sixty-eight days' fight in Manchester's
Piccadilly Station.
