Nice theory. However, trying to test the sample you provided earlier:

	mrburns:~/tex% ls
	mrburns:~/tex% xelatex z.tex
	This is XeTeXk, Version 3.141592-2.2-0.996 (Web2C 7.5.6)
	 %&-line parsing enabled.
	entering extended mode
	LaTeX2e <2005/12/01>
	Babel <v3.8h> and hyphenation patterns for english, usenglishmax, dumylang, noh
	yphenation, arabic, basque, bulgarian, coptic, welsh, czech, slovak, german, ng
	erman, danish, esperanto, spanish, catalan, galician, estonian, farsi, finnish,
	 french, greek, monogreek, ancientgreek, croatian, hungarian, interlingua, ibyc
	us, indonesian, icelandic, italian, latin, mongolian, dutch, norsk, polish, por
	tuguese, pinyin, romanian, russian, slovenian, uppersorbian, serbian, swedish,
	turkish, ukenglish, ukrainian, loaded.
	Document Class: article 2005/09/16 v1.4f Standard LaTeX document class
	fontspec.cfg loaded.
	No file z.aux.
	[1] (./z.aux) )
	(see the transcript file for additional information)

	Output file removed.
	Output written on z.pdf (1 page).
	Transcript written on z.log.
	mrburns:~/tex% ls
	z.aux  z.log  z.tex

So it claims it's written z.pdf, but it hasn't. Further, I thought
maybe it's just put it somewhere else. However, running find shows
that there's no z.pdf anywhere on the entire machine. It may work, but
it's not much use if it doesn't produce any output...
