Please don't spread the word about using "-I omega" with texindy if
you're not really using Omega. If it works for you, fine -- but
please don't recommend it.

"xindy -M texindy" is your command in that case. I recently changed
the texindy man page to emphasize that.

Sigh. I really have to add a "-I <something>" option to texindy
that simply skips all texindy LICR heuristics and simply forwards
that call to "xindy -M texindy".

Anybody got a good proposal how "<something>" should be named?
"non-LICR"? "XeTeX"? "LuaTeX"? All of them?

@Karl: Would such a change in a script be OK for TL 2014?
@Peter: xindy-2.5.1 with just that small change?
