A putative solution would be that Jonathan (or some dedicated 
individual) consider converting the Fourier fonts (from 
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.gwtex/fonts/type1/public/fourier/, see the 
doc at /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.gwtex/doc/latex/fourier/) to the 
proper OTF format so that XeTeX can use them.

As they are public domain, I imagine there wouldn't be any licence 
issue. Michel Bovani, their author, has at times posted to the OS X TeX 
list. From 

	The licence of fourier-GUTenberg is lppl (latex public
	project licence). All the files of this distribution remain in 
	wich name is "fourier".

They have the appropriate "boldness", too, I think, given the Fourier 
fonts were constructed to provide, together with Utopia, a lookalike 
for the pair Lucida NewMath + Lucida Bright.

You're perfectly right! What was I thinking?
