hm... YATP - yet another tex package... for unicode stuff the  
fontspec-package works great, would be nice to be able to extend its  
capabilities on normal TeX, just to make life simpler in the future.  
i know that it is possible to fix every little problem with a neat  
little package, but i can't say, that it makes the whole TeX system  
any more attractive to newcomers and other not-so-nerdy people inside  
universities. that's sad.
