Please send me a copy of  unimath.sty .

I've been meaning to write to you about  xmaths  for some time;
there's an incomplete discussion thread that I was going to continue,
from 2-3 months ago, concerning xmaths and STIX, etc.
However, I've been too busy with conferences and uni class-work.
Now that is all finished, I'll be getting back to it.

We should not release anything until we can merge both yours
and my work, into a package that has properly worked out how
to handle maths, for:
   LaTeX typesetting with different fonts;
   Unicode strings in other parts of PDF ;
   different kinds of driver support.

Now I have plenty of sample materials for testing such features,
and will have thousands more next year, where I'll be wanting to use
this kind of feature.
