Sorry, I have not been using Weave, and much of the new/changed code  
in xetex has not been structured/commented carefully in a Weave- 
compatible way.

I have just checked in changes to allow Weave (and TeX on the  
resulting file) to run without fatal errors; mostly this means  
cleaning up TeX-related markup in the comments. Note, however, that  
there are many places where the commentary in the WEB file describes  
the original TeX or e-TeX code, and has not been fully updated to  
reflect the changes in XeTeX. So be cautious when looking at the  
module descriptions.
