check_base and letterhead would be valid in both.

Right now xelatex support is not really there by the supporting
modules.  Right now this involves hacking some of the files like
LaTeX::Driver although presumably there will be new versions out soon
that may address this.

I wouldn't say it's "mainline supported."  It is something we'd like
to get there, and in the mean time it's "be or hire an expert"
territory.  And by expert I mean someone who is comfortable hacking
CPAN modules and is fairly familiar with LaTeX, and is either familiar
with XeTeX or willing to learn.
