comment XeLaTeX cannot map letters with diacritics correctly?
Why don’t you just use ǚ directly? At least with some fonts it produces better results.

comment Are there alternatives to Beamer for slides ?
It’s not only fancy transitions which are affected by this but also some overlays which can be helpful in all sorts of presentations.

comment Why is LaTeX separated into many thousands of packages?
@TH. @Alan Munn : That may be okay for simple packages. But when it involves fonts, updmap stuff or even uninstalling, one wishes that there was a better tool for that. The Linux file system only works today because there are package managers. tlmgr is working well but unfortunately is not shipped with a Texlive installation on many Linux systems.

I think one should definitely fight those weaknesses: the scoping (which might not be avoidable, of course, unless one designs a complete tex overhaul) and the complicated path structure which makes local installation of packages a huge pain.

But then you’ll find that you like that certain style very much and, oh, it’s been packaged in t-super-brilliant-style, and you need somebody to install this package as well. – It may be easier though, with Context – if it had the momentum.
