Close, but actually this won't work right now (I believe). The  
existing xetex.def file configures graphicx to work with the xdv2pdf  
driver on Mac OS X, but on Linux we're using (extended) dvipdfmx  
instead, and it won't recognize the same \specials.

What *should* work (though I haven't tried it yet) would be to load  
graphicx, but explicitly give the [dvipdfm] option to select the  
output driver. And be sure to use the package's version of \reflect,  
not a private definition in the source file that uses the xdv2pdf  

When I have time to update the sample files, etc., I'll try to test  
and explain this stuff - right now, it's all very experimental!
