All that stuff is copyrighted and blessed by AMS, even type1 fonts

CTAN already seems more clear than TL ;-) All amsfonts are gathered
in fonts/amsfonts, so the current TL state, e.g.,

Now I have to start my cleaning from cmextra which was pretty merged with
extracm from AMS... So the only problem I see is to rename AMS cyrillic
