  XDV generation is really a minor point with repect to all of XeTeX's
capabitilities, and in the thread you mention, you have failed to
provide insight as to what this would improve over DVI and PDF
production, which LuaTeX already can do.

  But anyway, this is not the place to have that discussion.  Let's
stick to GSoC projects.

  I think this would miss Scott's point entirely, which -- as I
understand it -- is to provide a better search interface than looking up
a single symbol in a list of 4947, sorted in some rough categories
(which in no way diminishes the value of your work, Scott).
