That's not good! From working with fontinst I have a lot of MAP files 
in ~/Library/texmf/fonts/map/dvips/updmap which I do not want to 
install system-wide at once by invoking the install script with sudo. 
And I really do not want to wait some minutes until texhash has 
finished to be able to check what I've done right now. This is really 
no good idea, except you make the cleaner script remove only copies of 
the system MAP files, leaving out names from texmf.local tree. Just 
imagine there is some work in progress to make the local fonts 
accessible by TeX! The recent halfway working state is made available 
to all by installing things into the texmf.local tree, further 
investigation is needed and will be done (with the nex TeX 
installation), and so we have in ~/Library/texmf/fonts/map/dvips/updmap 
the same names once more.

And it's needed that all non-sys scripts are invoked à la 'sudo -H -u 
<the user> <util> <arguments>' that the user is able to clean 
i-Installer's remains easily afterwards.

A nice thing would be to have an option to press a button and then to 
see which 'private' files will get removed.
