comment Magic Quadrant Chart
I assume you mean what is called in English a Magic Square? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_square I don't think there's a package out there to do that.

comment How to change direction in xelatex?
The more basic solution to not using bidi is to reimplement bidi yourself in every package you write. To do this I think you need to read the bidi code and make a really stripped down version that does what you want.

comment Linguex glosses and translation separating across page break
Since an example can have subexamples, are you only concerned about keeping example/glosse/translation together for any particular sentence or also keeping e.g. (1) a, b, c together?
