[dev-context] adobekb problem

Hi,

This has taken me a while to realise, but the following
way to use the psnfss fonts is broken:

    \usetypescript[adobekb][ec]
    \usetypescript[palatino][ec]
    \switchtobodyfont[palatino]

You need to load the map file for 8r, because the metrics in EC
encoding are virtual fonts. There is a map file for EC metrics,
but that is absolutely useless for these virtual fonts.
The easiest way of doing that is:

    \usetypescript[adobekb][8r,ec]
    \usetypescript[palatino][ec]


Previously, this stuff used to work because context-base.map and
pdftex.map contained all of the map files, including the 8r one,
but now that context-base.map is gone, manual loading of 8r is needed.

Bye, Taco
