But packages depend on the actual file name, so now after
lmmath-regular.otf was removed unicode-math is broken (if the user
didn’t specify a math font), and I believe ConTeXt depends on that file
name two. I thought the purpose for lmmath-regular.otf name is two allow
for a future lmmath-bold.otf font, no?
