Do you find this useful for applications other than testing or
experimenting with the various (La)TeX engines?

I ask because my personal needs suggest that I'm not likely to switch back
and forth between xelatex and (pdf)latex on the same project: one's better
at fonts and Unicode, and the other is better at math, afaict.

If this flexibility is useful in other circumstances, I'd love to hear
about it -- and to see an example of your preamble.
