Fixed?!!! I think people who prefer to use plain pdfTeX don't think there is anything to fix!

And repackaging instead of going to Preferences -> Typesetting -> Default and selecting your preferred engine-format?

And if I think that everybody should be using XeLaTeX, can I ask for a repackaging with XeLaTeX as the default engine-format?
