Just remember that at least 2 formats are needed, since there are 
2 more or less compatible compilers.

OK, I have spent a few hours preparing a more or less complete
test document. Note that it doesn't demonstrate all features
provided by antomega, because I had to typeset it with the omlgc 
font (imperfect, but available in all distributions). Better
results could be achieved with cm-lgc (which however also lacks
some useful characters).

Also, even in this file not everything works as expected,
because preparing it allowed me to find some bugs in antomega.
These bugs are quite trivial and can be easily fixed in future
versions. Some of them are mentioned in my comments.

Unfortunately, I have noticed some bugs in omega compiler itself, which
I have never seen previously. First, lambda from teTeX 3 always
crashes on any attempt to load a 8-bit virtual font. I am sure
there were no such effects in teTeX 2, because previously I spent
enough time experimenting with 8-bit output (which was always
supported by antomega). Lamed doesn't have this problem. However
there are some situations where both lambda and lamed crash
without any clear reason (i. e. adding a text line at the
beginning causes the compiler crash when processing the very end
of the file). Currently I have no ideas what exactly could cause 
this problem.
