[XeTeX] Using tikz with plain XeTeX

Well, I did what was requested (the full code - an awful lot of which is 
just \def this, \def that, etc., accumulated over the past few decades from 
pre-XeTeX days).  I'll try to find time for this - but I've never 
encountered a package that would do such a thing, and kill off my running 
headlines (as well as adjusting the offset positions) while it was at it!

Then I think you will have to strip down your fault-provoking code to 
something manageable, John; "necessary and sufficient" is the key -- you 
have provided the necessary, now it is surely incumbent on you to strip it 
down to the necessary if others are to be able to help you in finite time.
