Good one!
Let's see...


I probably lean towards one of those last two.

Does anyone else think that "xelatex" is a bit long-winded? Would  
something more abbreviated by better? xltex/lxtex/lextex/xeltex/ 
xlatex...I guess it's too late to change now.

Jon: I'd like to steer away from 'xpackages' type names since that's  
*also* the convention of the LaTeX3 project; they've got xor, xbase,  
xfrontmatter, ...

Malte: xlt-supp is too ConTeXt :) xinx is pretty good, but also not  
very descriptive.
It'd be a great name for a different package!

Anyway, I'll give it more thought and upload a renamed version tonight.
Further comments today would be welcomed.
