Jean-Côme, you're right on the ball there -- that's exactly what I need :)
Patiently awaiting xlop 0.3 :)
Would there be anything I can do to help speed up its release? :p

Yes, I suppose (am I wrong?) that Hubert ask for xlop feature where
some numbers can be typeset in white (or what you want). For example to
13 ) 12345
13 ) 12345
xlop v0.3 will do that because there will be an english division.
Problem: I haven't any clue about the date of this release! Not before
september for sure.
