How strange the list messages have been arriving here in random order
for a few days, with the initial message in a thread arriving often
after several of the replies to it!
I must admit I don't like the long names such as fixxelatex, and
certainly not names with dashes in them such as fix-xelatex.
xelatexfix sounds nicer, but still it's long.

You've got a point here, but I must admit I liked this naming scheme,
already used by xunicode.sty. xextras felt nice, as did xtras or even
xxtras, extrax or xfix or fixx. But well...
