Since the files and directories created in the ~/Library/texmf tree are 
owned by root the user can't remove them easily. The install scripts 
therefore should run the non-sys utilities in a non-system-wide 
installation with sudo -H -u $realname <the utility + args> to make the 
utlities' output owned by the user and not root.

~/Library/texmf/fonts/map/*/fontinst is a good place for MAP files: 
updmap-sys finds them there!

And yes: the precise removal of updmap files finds my approval!
