To revisit an old thread: Ross, I wonder if it would be appropriate  
to change the description once more, given that "XeTeX for Linux"  
actually runs on various non-Linux systems (such as Solaris, and  
probably some other Unix-y things)..... and especially now that it  
has been built for Windows as well.

How about "Extended TeX with Unicode and OpenType support", or  
something like that? Or perhaps it should be "Unicode-based TeX for  
Mac OS X and other systems", recognizing that the Mac OS X version is  
the original and most mature implementation.
