I don't really follow the argument here. The most convenient situation
is of course when tetex-3 has already been installed when ec-fonts is,
since then the installation script for ec-fonts can call updmap in the
existing tetex.
In fact, I would propose a dependency such that ec-fonts is always
installed after tetex-*, also since the font itself doesn't make sense
without tetex.

The problem is for users who have tetex-2 installed, then install
ec-fonts (which runs updmap on tetex-2) and after that upgrade to
tetex-3. An ugly workaround would be to make separate packages of
ec-fonts for tetex-2 and tetex-3. They could have exactly the same
contents, the point is just to be able to invoke the installation
script of ec-fonts after the installation of tetex-3.

I still don't see any reason to involve anything related to ec-fonts
in the installation scripts for LilyPond.

So, the new lilypond must contain the updmap also for

tetex, so tetex-3 may be installed before ec-fonts.

Hmm, ok.

Because tetex-3.0 will break existing lilypond, we must release
tetex-3.0 for cygwin at the same time with lilypond-2.4.3 and

Yes.  I've added removal of /var/lib/texmf to the
script, so I can send an update notice right after you lilypond with
tetex-3.0 fixes is installed in Cywgin.
