In the case of XeTeX, at this stage it'd definitely be a case of a new  
copy of inputenc.sty.

Luckily for us, the LPPL no longer mandates that filenames are  
protected :) As long as we make our intentions known, and I print a  
big fat warning in the XeTeX version of inputenc, I agree this is the  
easiest way.

I don't particularly want to fork LaTeX if I can help it :)

I'll go away and bash out a quick attempt at what this file might do  
(for XeTeX; I don't have time to dive into LuaTeX until next year at  
least) and we'll go from there... (although it's not too late to  
change my mind if other LaTeX team members feel that updating the  
canonical version of inputenc is a better idea).

Thanks for the quick replies,
