    Han The Thanh, who added the character-protrusion support, but
    I'm not sure if he has time or interest to work on further issues at
    this time.

Thanh just wrote me a couple days ago saying he doesn't.
He'll fix bugs in the margin kerning, and that's all he can commit to.

    fairly easily, by modifying xetex so that (when using fontconfig to find
    fonts) it always writes the absolute path to the font file into the xdv

Sounds great.

I totally agree about not worrying about more "unportable" xdv files.
