[XeTeX] bidi.sty for plain XeTeX

 	I have here Vafa Khalighi's documentation for his bidi package. 
It has a section on using his bidi package with plain TeX.  He says the 
bidi package is loaded with the command \input bidi, but that command 
doesn't work (at least with my 2009 version of TeX Live) because xetex 
can't find the bidi file.  If I use the command \input bidi.sty xetex 
finds the bidi.sty file for xelatex not xetex. That's why I was wondering 
whether there wasn't another bidi.sty file available for plain xetex.
Perhaps there are other bidi packages available that I do not know of.
