Sorry for the late reply. These messages were put in my spam box by my
spam filter.

I do also have some patches for the new output routines which add:
- the correct \evensidemargin, \oddsidemargin and \topmargin
- traditional LaTeX marks implemented on top of the new mark mechanism
- headers and footers (with the standard latex2 API, thus compatible with
  packages like fancyhdr)

I made all the changes (which aren't many) in xor-new.sty. Of course they
would have to be put into xor-new.dtx, and I can do that if there is
interest in these patches.

Anybody interested?
