package:     xunicode
category:    Package
shortdesc:   Generate Unicode characters from accented glyphs
longdesc:    The package supports XeTeX's (and other putative future similar 
engines') need for Unicode characters, in a similar way to what the fontenc 
does for 8-bit (and the like) fonts: convert accent-glyph sequence to a single 
Unicode character for output. The package also covers glyphs specified by 
packages (such as tipa) which define many commands for single text glyphs.

so I guess this .sty is included by default.  Is it not the case?

Yeah, it is a request for a long time.  But nothing I am aware of.
