Ok, I added the command

      X\lower #3
      \hbox{\kern #2
        \ifnum\XeTeXcharglyph"018E > 0
        \else % rotation is about the origin, so we need to adjust  

to the definition of \TeXlogospacing. It is basically the definition  
of \XeTeX substituting \LaTeX for \TeX at the end and using a \kern#4  
instead of \kern#1 before it. The 4th argument (#4) is the kerning  
between the L & A in \LaTeX and that seems to look pretty good to my  

I also added a \RequirePackage{graphicx} near the top of the package  
and changed the internal name of the package to xltxtrax.sty so it  
generates a warning when called (since the internal and external  
package names differ).

Good Luck,
