[XeTeX] Using tikz with plain XeTeX

Even if PS-Tricks and Tikz do clash, it doesn't seem to be PS-Tricks 
specifically that's causing this issue (I've tried commenting it out) - 
suspicion currently falls on Edmac, which I use for cropmarks and sometimes 
for other purposes (e.g. automatic line numbering of texts when required). 
I don't really mind doing without tikz (at least for now), but it would be 
good to know the cause of the weird behaviour!

That may well be the case (I am not personally aware of this, but then I 
have never wanted to use pstricks) but if so, should not tikz and pstricks 
test for each other's presence and report a clash if detected ?
