Just bringing it up, not being judgemental. :-)

Given all the projects you've been involved with in terms of xelatex, lualatex and the LaTeX3 Project not to even talk about your real work everything is rather amazing. Did you ever take any time off after finishing the thesis---or was the trip to SF you vacation? :-)

By the way, my real needs are fairly simple so many of these things don't effect work on the documents I produce. I just do random testing at times with some other fancier stuff that I can use as a reference, if I ever need it, and occasionally run into things.

Good Luck,
