This is a template file to make several different file types.
.doc extension is unfortunate here, though.
.aft are regular .afm files consistent with .tfm files (.afm are
consistent with .pfb) to help people to play with.
don't know why we need .ali files in TL. Perhaps we can strip that.

.pfm files are never used by any of TeX programs. They are included
together with .pfb files to help people installing them when needed
in windows, os/2 or some more. The same is with .inf files.

Sorry, no. TDS must be for people, but not vice versa. .pfm in other
directory are unusable at all. They are very small files and doesn't hurt
Many thanks for your comments, testing and script.
All the best,
