[texhax] How to configure TeXLive to create xelatex based xmltex format

What is the proper way to go about doing this?

I need to create a new format which:

 - uses xetex (including all the nifty unicode stuff)
 - includes all of LaTeX
 - includes xmltex.tex
 - generates a .pdf file

So that I can type (say) xexmltex <filename.xml> (w/ appropriate .cfg, dtd, xmt &c. files in place) and get a typeset .pdf w/o having to create a .tex file and process all of xmltex.tex each time.

Please let me know what I should do, or which bit of documentation I missed.
