Having tried harder, I confirm what Herb just said: accents come out  
OK after removing the above two lines from the patch (except for the  
error about \colon being already defined).

One *very* minor worry: that the accents will be taken always from  
cmr10, even if the Euler or Lucida math fonts are used. I don't know  
how this could be fixed. For Lucida, one could require lucidabr.sty  
to be called before fontspec.sty, and then using \let to do something  

\let\legacymathsencoding=\operator at encoding

and then


all this before the text fonts are initialized in fontspec.sty. But  
that's only for Luciuda, it's completely untested, and might be  
trashed by any possible \AtBeginDocument in other packages.
