[tex-live] XeTeX Chinese MWE no longer compiles on pretest

    The new allocation scheme "knows" about xetex and always uses count257


    \ifx\e at alloc\@undefined\else
      \countdef\xe at alloc@intercharclass=257

don't we need to do the \countdef unconditionally?  (or rather, if
\xe at alloc@intercharclass itself is undefined.)  at the point where
xeCJK.sty (or whatever) is read, latex's \e at alloc may or may not be
defined, but it's still using \xe at alloc@intercharclass.  seems to me.

i will do it in xelatex.ini unless you want to do it in latex.ltx.

    Bit late to think about which is best at present....

it is not too late. this is what pretests are for.
