OK, that's good to know, because I also wanted to release and update 
some stuff to CTAN soon enough that it would be part of TL2008 ;) 
Especially polyglossia, which will provide a babel replacement for users 
of xelatex.
(Zdenek: I'll contact you offlist about integrating your hindi support 
in polyglossia).
