OK, new xetex is built and tested on my thesis. I haven't tested  
image inclusion or fancy PDF box types (I just use the standard crop  
box). However, for PDF+crop boxes, things work properly and  
identically with 'normal' xetex and xetex+xdvipdfm, the latter both  
with \documentclass[dvipdfm,...] (which worked before), and without.
