Another somewhat embarrassing topic in the conference is that people are
asking why we don't have support for XeTeX and luatex.

It is a reality that people can't just use a single of those engines:
documents depend on particular engines, and there is none that can be
used for all.

I don't know whether TeX-Omega-mode has ever been used by anybody, so
keeping it is probably not a priority.  Instead we should have
selectable backends in a similar way that VC, the version control system
of Emacs, can deal with multiple backends.
