XeTeX is reasonably well supported in ConTeXt (font stuff is better
supported in LaTeX for the time being, hopefully this will change).

I was in "Stammtisch" in Nürnberg in 2005 where exTeX developers were
all enthusiastic about it, but at the same meeting in Ulm this year it
was all silent about that topic. It's written in Java and runs
already, but I have a feeling that they didn't come any further than
experimental code and I didn't have a feeling that much has been done
in the last year (but I may be wrong).
