I'm aware of this change; currently, the XeTeX 0.88 installer attempts 
to patch fmtutil so that it will know about the .xfmt extension (can 
anyone confirm whether this works?). The correct fix is probably to 
change xetex to use .fmt as well. (I haven't had time to try the TL 
2004 setup myself yet; "real work" calls!)
