[XeTeX] Customizing footnote markers

I've been trying to get polyglossia and babel to coexist all the
afternoon long: seven languages is simply too much!

> \documentclass[a4paper]{article}
> \usepackage{polyglossia,lipsum}
> \setmainlanguage{french}
> \setotherlanguage{greek}
> \makeatletter
> \renewcommand\@makefntext[1]{%
>  \noindent\@thefnmark.~#1}
> \makeatother
> \begin{document}
> abc\footnote{\lipsum[1]}
> \end{document}

This works fine, except that it completely does away with the original
indentation of footnotes, which I wish to conserve. Actually I'm under
the impression that French footnotes do require even more indentation
than normal ones.
