Fine, thanks. I think it's nicer to see the user manual first :-)
I just noticed that there are no aliases for the extremely popular  
packages described in psnfss2e.pdf. Maybe you could add them, too:

alias mathpazo = psnfss2e
alias mathptmx = psnfss2e
alias helvet = psnfss2e
alias avant = psnfss2e
alias courier = psnfss2e
alias chancery = psnfss2e
alias bookman = psnfss2e
alias newcent = psnfss2e
alias charter = psnfss2e
alias times = psnfss2e
alias palatino = psnfss2e
alias mathptm = psnfss2e
alias mathpple = psnfss2e
alias utopia = psnfss2e

OK, that's of course fine with me. Thanks for the good work on TeX Live!
