	Actually, one should say it differentiates between those that can follow a mass and those that understand what is going on and being said.
	So the way things are now, there are those that can use Xe(La)TeX (because they learned the words) and 
	those that understand what is happening (those that have command of english and TeX).

> for TeX _is_ dividing between those who speak English and those who don't.) But if I recall my school years correctly, understanding wasn't really important to Catholics. ;-)
	Personally, whether it is called \section, \abschnitt, or \ghaefjkh123 does not matter, as long as I can learn
	which command name to use for getting a section.
