The gain, Ulrike, would be that in order to answer Rolf's /cri de cœur/, 
one would simply have to say "use the AFMPFX package, Rolf — that will 
allow you to use not only BrushScriptX-Italic, but will also allow you 
to use any type-1 font listed in the catalogue. And if you want to use 
some fonts that exist only in a different format, then you just need to 
load the package for that format, regardless of the actual font(s) that 
you want to use".
